Details

Didn't get a lot of comments on topics.
This is one i've been working on for a bit, covered in recent vid and blog https://www.agilicus.com/assess-web-security/

I will go through how one assess a web app/api/site for security. How to harden it, showing some of the tools.

I will then show some of the complex things you can do w/ a Web Application Firewall (WAF) using resty-lua-waf (https://github.com/p0pr0ck5/lua-resty-waf) as an examplke, if you are stuck with a weak app and no way to fix its code.

Topics:
