In this session a currently provisional member of the Drupal Security Team gives a broad overview about how security bugs are present and could be prevented on Drupal projects with a special focus on API-like applications to raise awareness for decoupled approach from security perspectives.

He's going to go through the 4 stages of a bug's life:

  • The eggs: Planning and security by design

  • The caterpillar: Development iterations until first release

  • The chrysalis: First releases of the application

  • The butterfly: Maintenance releases and activities

Attendees can take many conceptual best practices away to understand how decoupled applications on each sides could and should be planned and implemented in order to guarantee a high level security. We'll check tools and processes regarding application security and also understand the basics of vulnerability management — how they increase the quality of applications and why mitigation and remediation plans are crucial to manage projects on a large scale.

The session is meant to be a project management one, but technical staff also can benefit to understand needs and implementations of secure application development.
