Security Awareness for Open Source Web Applications
In this session, we are going to have a broad overview of how security bugs are present and could be prevented on open source projects.
We are going to go through the 4 stages of a bug’s life:
- The Eggs - Planning and Security by Design;
- The Caterpillar - Development iterations until the first release;
- The Chrysalis - First releases of the application;
- The Butterfly - Maintenance releases and activities
Attendees can take many conceptual best practices away that suppose to raise security awareness from the beginning of projects until reaching the maintenance phases. We’ll check tools and processes regarding Application Security and also understand the basics of Vulnerability Management - how they increase the quality of web applications and why mitigation and remediation plans are crucial to managing projects on a large scale. The session focuses on secure application development, highlights pain points on planning and implementation phrases and does not forget to pay attention to corrective and adaptive maintenance phases, keeping our Neos projects safe and up-to-date.
