AtlantaPHP June 2014 Meeting

PRESENTATION: Security for PHP websites: a wider perspective

Presentation by Brent Laminack, OpenFaceSystems.com

Description: We all know to sanitize user inputs for security, but is security more than that? In this talk, we'll take a step back and get a wider perspective on all the auxiliary services that impact website security: DNS, email, databases, et al. We'll discuss options for each and take a look at their security implications. It should be a lively evening.

About Brent: Brent's been a Unix SysAdmin since 1982, currently the leader of the Atlanta Unix Users' Group, a CISSP and has taught continuing ed classes at Tech, Emory and UGA. His web development company, OpenFace Systems, uses mainly Joomla. He's been using PHP since the late '90s and brings a greybeard's perspective to his topics. He tweets at @iblamm.

      We'll try the Barrelhouse as usual, but if it's jammed, we can try Ray's Pizza next door.

    Hi all - I appreciate everyone's enthusiasm and interest, but for the foreseeable future, live streaming is not at all something we can take on. You may not know that Hypepotamus is closing and June is our last meeting there. We thought we had our next location worked out, but that may now be in question, so we're back to finding a new spot that will hopefully be long term. We already have a few options that we're following up on.

      Hi, I'm new here Chris, but I have a large office space with an auditorium room that sets at least 60. It is in Marietta at Bell's Ferry and US 41. You probably want a downtown location, but if free is a good price and it's not too far out - then we should talk. Thanks! George

      Hi George - thanks so much for the offer! We'll keep you in mind if we need further options, but I think that's going to be outside our preferred range.

    Eric, interesting idea....

    I'll do some research to see if I can find something. What type of equipment are the meetings recorded on? Is it an audio/video recorder connected to a PC with internet access?

    It would be cool to not only provide a live stream but as you say, connect it to Skype or Hangouts so people attending remotely can make comments or ask questions in real time.

    Hey Jeff..

    I've thought about the same thing...

    Wonder if their is a PHP open source project out their to tie hangout or Skype together with our video recording..

    It's sometimes hard to make these meetings in person during the week. Have you given any thought to open the meetings up to people who want to attend VIA telepresence?
