  • Hidden security features of the JVM – everything you didn’t know and more
    Java 17 announced the depreciation of the Security Manager (which is ok since hardly anyone used it) but that doesn’t mean the JVM leaves you vulnerable. Many design features in the JVM and the JDK are there to help keep your application safe from harm. In this session, we’ll walk through these points – from compiler to bytecode to runtime and give you a refresher on how to get the best from these features. We’ll also look at new things in the works, compile-to-native consequences and even some off-the-wall “it’s just an idea” thoughts about how to make the JVM an even more secure environment.

  • Stranger Danger: Your Java Attack Surface Just Got Bigger
    Building (cloud-native) Java applications is undoubtedly awesome. However, it comes with undeniable new risks. Next to your own code, you are relying on so many other things. Blindly depending on open-source libraries and Docker images can form a massive risk for your application. The wrong package can introduce severe vulnerabilities into your application, exposing your application and your user’s data. Join this hands-on Java cloud-native live-hacking session where we’ll show common threats, vulnerabilities, and misconfiguration. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to protect your application with actionable remediation and best practices.
