Securing web apps with modern platform features
Thursday March 12, 09:00 - 10:30
Web applications have historically been plagued by vulnerabilities which allow attackers to compromise the session of a logged-in user. Luckily, new security mechanisms in web browsers offer ways for developers to protect their applications
Common vulnerabilities such as XSS, CSRF, and others have long plagued the web. They also account for most of the high-risk flaws reported under Google's Vulnerability Reward Program. Learn about the latest web platform security mechanisms to protect your apps from injections and isolate them from dangerous sites. You'll leave with a security checklist for defending your applications with new browser features based on Google Security Team's experience in protecting the web's most sensitive apps.
Understand how to defend your web applications with new web platform features.
