Hi, I’m Chris Shiflett, a web developer from Brooklyn, NY, and a founding member of Analog, a web design and development co-operative.

When inspiration strikes, I can be found scribbling on my blog at shiflett.org, or on Twitter as @shiflett. In 2007, I started PHP Advent, an Advent calendar for the PHP community.

I have authored and co-authored a few books — most notably Essential PHP Security and HTTP Developer’s Handbook — and I occasionally write articles for publications like Smashing Magazine, where I also serve on the editorial panel.

My passion for sharing ideas has brought me to a few conferences — including OSCON, Webstock, South by Southwest, and the Future of Web Apps — and events like Foo Camp, Kiwi Foo Camp, and the Microsoft Web Dev Summit.

When not in front of a computer, I can usually be found playing soccer in Prospect Park or riding my single-speed bicycle around Brooklyn.

This tutorial explores new concepts in web security. After a solid grounding in well-known exploits, I'll demonstrate how traditional exploits are being combined together and with other technologies to launch sophisticated attacks that penetrate firewalls, target users, and spread like worms. I'll then discuss some ideas for the future to help you provide a better, more secure user experience. Read more.
