Conquering injections


This talk is about the problem of .NET apps vulnerability to injection attacks to the languages of different grammars (HTML, JavaScript, URL, SQL, Path, etc.). In the first part of the talk we'll cover the formal model of an app that is vulnerable to the given attack class and the versatile approach to this app protection based on this model.

The second part of this talk is devoted to the review of the LibProtection open source library that allows developers to safely use the familiar API for their work with format and interpolated strings while working with input data and hides behind it a fully functional instrument of built-in protection of execution time.
