Presentation Abstract:
Today's web applications are deep, complex and dynamic. Traditional protection strategies need
to be rethought in light of new web and security technologies. During this talk we will explore
the options that the web application defense staff has in intelligently weaving detective and
preventative code mechanisms directly into the fabric of a generically architected modular
application which may be hosted and executed on multiple load balanced servers. Applications 
using a backend SQL database will be examined in further detail. Historical efforts in this
area will be discussed with an emphasis on lessons learned and relations to current practices.
One specific web application framework will be used as the primary example for hypothetical 
implementations but concepts will be explained using framework agnostic terminology.
