.NET Security Presentation @ PakCon 2004

On December 23rd I was invited to speak at PakCon2004 (www.pakcon.org). They defined PakCon as
Pak Con – where security matters!

Pak Con is an exclusive cyber security convention, the first initiative of its kind in the history of Pakistan IT scene. Pak Con is the brainchild of a group of capable security professionals who have employed their genius and aptitude to provide an overall extensive and comprehensive experience of information security in the form of a wide-ranging convention on information security. We at Pak Con aim to highlight all the issues related with information security and the problems faced by IT professionals, accurately and in depth. Our objective is to examine flaws with new and current technologies, finding their solutions, covering unique and interesting developments. We are well aware of the fact that there is a high probability to the level of certainty that technology can be converted from a tool of progression into a tool for repression. We intend to curb all the threats of such a nature by developing a sound and effective information security defense system that in turns daunts all hazardous actions. Our strategy is of a bold nature, instead of hiding our face from the reality of the situation, we are willing to confront all the dangers facing the IT community and provide them definite resolutions.

I was there to speak on .NET Security and How to develop enterprise scale secure applications. I had 50 minute time slot followed by 10 mins Q/A, the session went well and I belive audience enjoyed it. I focused on some of the core functionalities in .NET Security API, like Authentication/Authorization and CAS. I also showed a sample code snippet using IIdentity interface.
and presentation are made available at PakCon web Site.
