Security Impact of HTML5
HTML 5 does more then add a couple new and nifty tags to the venerable HTML markup language. It has to be seen as part of the new dynamic web which no longer delivers static documents but dynamic applications that interact with backend web services.
This talk will discuss some of the more prominent and complex features of HTML and explore how a developer can use these features securely. We will demonstrate some attacks and walk through how different defenses mitigate these attacks. One of the focus areas will also be privacy and how the user data can be protected within HTML 5 applications.
