Writing secure code is hard or is it?

Nanne Baars is a security software developer with a focus on Java development and one of the project leads for the OWASP WebGoat project.

As developers we all know we should do secure coding, but what does it actually mean and how do you spot subtle mistakes in your code or during a code review. In this presentation I will present some code examples and let the audience detect the mistake and of course explain the vulnerability at hand and show a fix. It is all about awareness secure coding is hard and looking at examples will teach us about it and hopefully rings a bell next time you need to develop a piece of code in this area, hopefully the audience remembers this talk and remembers how to write it in a secure way…
