Stranger Danger: Your Node.js Attack Surface Just Got Bigger


Half Day


Introductory & Overview

About the Workshop

Building Node.js applications today mean that we take a step further from writing code and using open-source dependencies to also creating a Dockerfile, deploying containers to the cloud, and orchestrating this infrastructure with Kubernetes. Welcome, you're a cloud native application developer! As developers, our responsibility broadened, and more software means more software security concerns for us to address. Join Liran for a hands-on Node.js cloud native live-hacking session, to show common threats, vulnerabilities and misconfigurations Most importantly, he'll also show how you can protect your application with actionable remediation and best practices for each exploit we demonstrate.
