 Using Cryptography to Improve Web Application Performance and Security

 6:45 pm, Suspenders Restaurant

 Cryptography has a reputation of slowing down applications. However if 
 done correctly, it can actually be used to improve performance by 
 storing high-value/high-cost results "in public." In addition the same 
 techniques can solve common security problems such as authorization, 
 parameter scanning, and parameter rewriting.

 All are welcome -- no previous experience with cryptography is required, 
 and the techniques will be presented in a programming-language neutral 

 Nick Galbreath have been working on high performance servers and web 
 security at various high profile startups since 1994 (most recently 
 Right Media). He holds a Master degree of Mathematics from Boston 
 University, and published a book on cryptography. He currently lives in 
 the Lower East Side.
