RESTing on Your Laurels Will Get You Pwned


Now, almost every company that wants to expose services or an application programming interface does it using a publicly exposed REST API. In addtion, almost every NoSQL database provides REST APIs. This talk will give participants the skills they need to identify and understand REST vulnerabilities. The findings are a result of reviewing production REST applications as well as researching popular REST frameworks.

He currently work for Samsung as a Software Director helping to drive security across new products and services. Prior to joining Samsung, Abraham worked as Principal Security Researcher for HP Fortify in their Software Security Research group.
