Wiki Security, Ofer Shezaf, Xiom (download)
Wiki is a revolutionary tool for creation and sharing of content by a team. To be revolutionary it needs to make radical changes from prevailing paradigms, and one of the key changes is in its security model: Wiki forgo with traditional authorization for revision control. The presentation will discuss this new security model as well as what it required in regard to more traditional application security issues.
