Video of session

The term "HTML5" encompasses a number of new subsystems that are currently being implemented in browsers. Most of these were created with a focus on functionality, not security. But the impact of these features is not all negative for security. Quite the oposit. New abilities to store data on the client, or having access to hardware sensors like geolocation and tilt sensors have the ability to enhance session tracking and make authentication more secure and easier to use. This talk will select a number of examples to demonstrate the positive, as well as sometimes negative, impact of these features for web application security. Code samples for any demonstrations will be made available.
