The Changing Battleground of Application Security
Modern applications are much different from those we built just a few years back. As an example, today's web, mobile and IoT applications are much more reliant on APIs to enable functionality, extensibility and integrations with other applications. The increased usage of APIs by developers combined with the uniqueness of each API is forcing us to rethink how we secure today's applications.
In this session you'll learn more about the security implications of modern applications and APIs including:
- Why traditional vulnerabilities like SQLi and XSS are less relevant in modern applications
- How attackers exploit new API vulnerabilities and why traditional approaches can't stop them
- Why we need an OWASP Top 10 for API security risks
