Securing and Attacking the HTML5 Landscape

infragard_IMA_logo1-smKnoxville InfraGard Chapter Meeting

Securing and Attacking the HTML5 Landscape will be the topic of this InfraGard Knoxville chapter meeting on Thursday, May 22 from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm at Fountainhead College. This meeting is free and open to the public.

Our guest speaker will be Blake Hitchcock of Cisco Systems, Inc. He describes his talk as follows:

HTML5“Though HTML5 is still in Candidate Recommendation status, many of the proposed features are well supported by the major browser vendors and are becoming more and more common in web applications. As with any new feature set, HTML5 introduces a new class of vulnerabilities and exploit possibilities. It also provides functionality that, when used properly, can harden the security of web applications. This talk will focus on features such as Web Messaging, CORS, client Storage APIs, sandboxing, HTTP security headers, and other topics of interest related to HTML5 security. I will discuss how to use these features securely as well as how to attack and assess the security of an application using these technologies. “

Blake Hitchcock has been building and breaking web applications for 4 years with Cisco. He loves writing in Ruby and JavaScript, and 'Burp' is not just something he does after a few too many kielbasas. When he's not doing web stuff, Blake enjoys fitness, good food, sports, and cheering for his beloved Volunteers.
