While working on large node.js projects, Forbes noticed that there is no clear answer to common questions like “how do you securely store passwords”. He has also noticed that all the popular frameworks lack key security features such as CSRF protection and Rate Limiting by default. It’s really easy to get security wrong, and it’s not your fault that this is so difficult.

In this talk, Forbes will present some practical steps you can take to secure your applications, including protecting against the most common attack vectors, securely storing passwords, and implementing two-factor authentication. He’ll also attempt to inspire you to think differently about what the defaults should be when you build new applications and libraries. You can make your code default to security; it doesn’t have to be this way.
