Lessons learned as a pen-testing web developer

As a web developer, there are many things you need to consider to produce a quality product that delivers what is intended. Security is an aspect of web development that usually doesn’t contribute directly to the core goal of the web application, but is a critical component, and adds a layer of complexity to web development. In this presentation, Jakob will demonstrate the most common security flaws he finds as a penetration tester, and discuss strategies that help developers write more secure code.
