YUI Theater — Douglas Crockford: “Principles of Security” (60 min.)

From: Yahoo! User Interface Blog (YUIBlog) » YUI Theater

In this talk from the March 5, 2012 BayJax event at Yahoo!, Douglas Crockford outlines the basic principles of designing secure software, with a focus on web applications. With his usual sardonic wit, he starts at the beginning (almost literally — with the invention of language itself) and makes a strong case for designing secure software based on fundamental principles rather than specific techniques, tricks, or hacks.
