Writing Applications that are Easier to Defend than Attack

February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Conventional wisdom says that the attacker has an enduring economic advantage over the defender. After all, the good guy needs to fix all the vulnerabilities, while the attacker only needs to exploit one of them. Conventional wisdom is right if we keep developing software the way we always have. Fortunately, we can write code that is easier to defend than attack by taking good software engineering practice to its logical conclusion. I’ll illustrate by showing how to write an email client that is far safer than any available today.
