Enterprise Security API for PHP by Andrew van der Stock
Andrew van der Stock is the Project Lead for OWASP’s ESAPI for PHP. Learn how the Enterprise Security API can help you protect your PHP applications from the most common security flaws, as well as improve your overall security architecture.
Some of ESAPI’s features include:
- Object oriented (yes, we use classes and exceptions)
- Access Control
- Access Reference Maps
- Simplified Security Logging
- Intrusion Detection
- Encrypted configuration
- Input validation
- Safe(r) command shells
As it’s the early days of the PHP port, not all (if any) of these features are available today.
ESAPI for PHP is in dire need for volunteers. If you’re a PHP coder currently itching for a new project, fresh victims^W developers are more than welcome to volunteer to finish^W start this effort.
Impromptu Presentation, Lightening Talks, Discussion Forum
As we only have one talk scheduled for this month, the second half of the meeting will be open to anyone that wishes to give a lightening talk, start a discussion or give a presentation that they might feel is interesting.
We head over to the Belgian Beer Cafe at about 9pm for drinks and socialising.
