Security Policy Management: Easy as PIE

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

There are many security frameworks for web applications such as Content Security Policy (CSP), the Java Security Manager, and Spring Security. Effective use of these tools can mitigate or even eliminate entire classes of defects, but despite this they don't see widespread, standard use. This presentation discusses why this is, and focuses on one particular obstacle: defining a good security policy is hard. As part of this talk we present a new open-source tool, Policy Instantiation & Enforcement (PIE). PIE is designed as a generic tool which hooks into security managers and generates effective, simple, and verifiable security policies.
