Share Secure Password Storage: Increasing Resistance to Brute Force Attacks

Event Details

In the event that your password table gets into the wild, how long will it take an attacker to expose the plaintext passwords?  The recent set of well publicized disclosures of user passwords raises the question of whether current best practices adequately protect passwords from brute force attacks. This training will discuss the pros and cons of the current practices such as salted-hashes, adaptive hashes and proposes an alternative solution for strengthening these existing practices.  The talk will discuss the cryptographic properties of the current practices, but does not require a PhD. in mathematics to understand the details.


John Steven, Internal CTO, CigitalThis exclusive training event will be taught by Cigital Internal CTO and well-known security expert, John Steven

John’s expertise runs the gamut of software security from threat modeling and architectural risk analysis, through static analysis (with an emphasis on automation), to security testing.
