This presentation by Pete Lindstrom, Research Director of Spire Security, was given at Information Security Decisions Spring 2005.
The most significant attacks against data today have migrated "up the stack" to the application layer (Layer 7). To the Internet community, this means the Web and its evolutionary partner, Web Services, are prime targets.
This session tackles Web architecture from two perspectives -- that of the user (source) and the Web server (destination) -- and identifies solutions that address the specific issues with each. Additionally, it will apply a threat model approach to the newer protocols -- and the capabilities of Web services -- to identify new threats and how existing technology can thwart them.
