Oh no, I've been hacked! Have you ever uttered these words? Do you hope to never have to utter these words? If you said yes to either question, then this is one session you don't want to miss! In this session we'll cover best practice techniques you can use every day in your ColdFusion application development to bring peace of mind using layered security best practices like obfuscation, encryption, session management and authentication. You will learn:

  • What obfuscation is, and when, where and how to use it for layered security.
  • What encryption is, and when, where and how to use it for layered security.
  • How to build your own session management solution that follows layered security best practices.
  • How to leverage the browser to provide secure authentication mechanisms, including federated and multi-factor authentication.
  • How to think like a hacker, and how to avoid the common pitfalls developers run into when building secure applications.

The aim in this presentation is to provide you with the tools and techniques you'll need to write highly secure code, protect your customers identifiable data and ensure a secure solution.
