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
