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.
