Visualizing Security via LANGSEC

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A web security model entirely predicated on applying pattern
matching is at best a zero-sum game. Probabilistically, pattern
matching (regular expressions) cannot prevent attacks generated by
tools such as fuzzers. This talk will explore language security
(LANGSEC) as an alternative methodology. This talk will lay the
foundation via informal and formal theory how lexers, tokenizers and
parsers work. We’ll move onto constructing an open source toolchain to
analyzing data and exploring interactive data visualizations. Along
the way, we’ll cover performance tradeoffs and discuss the challenges
of modern application security. By the end of this talk, you’ll know
more about implementing LANGSEC to help analyze and prevent specific
security attacks.
