Using Cryptography to Improve Web Application Performance and Security

6:45 pm, Suspenders Restaurant

Cryptography has a reputation of slowing down applications. However  
if done correctly, it can actually be used to improve performance by  
storing high-value/high-cost results "in public." In addition the  
same techniques can solve common security problems such as  
authorization, parameter scanning, and parameter rewriting.

All are welcome -- no previous experience with cryptography is  
required, and the techniques will be presented in a programming- 
language neutral format.

Nick Galbreath have been working on high performance servers and web  
security at various high profile startups since 1994 (most recently  
Right Media). He holds a Master degree of Mathematics from Boston  
University, and published a book on cryptography. He currently lives  
in the Lower East Side.
