Security Impact of Unique Functionality - suspiciouslow

Differentiation is an essential aspect of any company’s product. Unique web application functionality is the modern form of product differentiation. Unfortunately, the security controls added to unique functionality are often very basic and easily bypassed. This talk will discuss the security impact of often overlooked functionality (Tooltips) and unique functionality (API Browser) in the Palo Alto Networks firewall. The talk will very briefly describe a stored cross-site scripting vulnerability (PAN-SA-2016-0014) in the firewall web application and how it impacts the security controls in the Palo Alto Networks API Browser (PAN-SA-2016-0032) functionality.

However, these devices are becoming far more accessible and versatile, and are able to do more than simply interface with a mobile device. Join us as we talk the basics of wearable development, including PebbleOS and Tizen.
