I will be speaking to the Rhode Island .NET Users Group (Providence, RI) on February 10. My topic is on security:
Secure Coding for the .NET Developer
Security is important to every company that develops and/or ships software, but security can never be an add-on or after thought. Developers need to be aware of common security threats, and they need to follow best practices for developing secure code.
This session will give an overview of basic security ideas and principles every developer should know. Also, this session will show the best ways to implement these ideas and principles using the .NET framework with examples in least-privileged development, input checking, cryptography usage, guarding against SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting, and many other techniques.
