Speaking at Day Camp 4 Developers on Two-Factor Auth

Well, the official announcements are making the rounds now, but the next Day Camp 4 Developers,(Master Series) will be coming up in October (the 18th) and will feature several security related talks. I’ll be one of the four folks presenting at this event and will be giving a talk about two-factor authentication. Here’s the summary:

Two-factor authentication has gotten a lot of attention lately. It’s being praised as a way to help eliminate identify theft online and already has several major companies adapting their practices to use it. Let me guide you through the world of two-factor authentication and explain some of the basic concepts and dive deeper into the associated protocols and RFCs. I’ll also show you some common implementations with standalone and web service options to get you started quickly.

Other topics that’ll be a part of this PHP Master Series (Vol 2) are:

  • Fred Alger – The OWASP Top 10 and You
  • Mike Stowe – Prison Theory of Web Development Security
  • Anthony Ferrara – Password Storage (And Hacking) in PHP

Tickets are already on sale, so you can go ahead and reserve your spot. We hope it’ll help encourage more PHP developers to get proactive about the security of their applications and expose them to some of the good practices and new ideas they can use.
