Broken Authentication: Fixing one of the most critical web application security risks

Executive Boardroom - 12:20 pm - 12:40 pm

Authentication is a cornerstone capability of any application. Ensuring a user is who they say they are is crucial to maintaining data privacy and preventing fraud and data breaches. Consequently, improperly implemented authentication, known as broken authentication, is a potentially devastating application vulnerability. In fact, the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) lists broken authentication as the second most critical security risk to web applications. 

This session will provide:  

  • An overview of broken authentication; 
  • Why it's so dangerous; 
  • The types of threats that can take advantage of this vulnerability; 
  • How you can prevent this most critical application security risk.
