Architected by Yehuda Katz core Ruby on Rails contributor and Tom Dale, Ember.js is a JavaScript MVC framework which evolved from Sproutcore 2.0. Seen as an alternative to other popular client MVC solutions like Backbone.js and Angular.js, Ember.js differs in that it provides Railslike defaults by convention to common coding patterns, intelligent memory management, builtin integration testing, and numerous, next generation client side persistence solutions.Join OReilly author, Jesse Cravens, as he present information from his new book: OReillys Building Modern Web Applications with Ember.js and Rails 4. He takes the audience through the construction of a demo application: setting up client side models and exploring the use of various persistence solutions, using data bindings to live update the UI in response to data changes, showing how Ember’s router manages application state, SPA authentication, and more.Attendees should leave this session with an understanding of how to build and deploy Ember.js applications using various server side web frameworks and the latest in clientside build, package management, and workflow.

AngularJS is a JavaScript framework for building rich, complex and maintainable web applications. It is fully extensible and works well with other libraries. AngularJS has support for client side routing, data binding, RESTful sever communication and more. AngularJS also lets you extend HTML vocabulary for your applications. The resulting environment is extraordinarily expressive, readable, and quick to develop. In this presentation, we’ll introduce you to AngularJS. We’ll start with a new web application and build a sample app to highlight some of the features in AngularJS. We will build a RESTful endpoint using NodeJS to easily persist data. This will be a code heavy talk with lots of examples. We’ll look at various features of the framework including support for data binding, client side routing, services, filters and dependency injection.This presentation will give you an introduction to AngularJS and some tips for creating complex and maintainable frontend web applications.

Security Leaks: HTTPS and Caching Issues
B-07
Justin JD Nir
Associate Security Consultant
ISE
It seems that we either feast or famine. Either a developer restricts HTTPS to the point where the protocol is not taking advantage of the local storage, or they enable local storage to the point where HTTPS has a time to live independent of the application. This Security session shows the way to optimize for the BYOD world and at the same time maintain Security.Most web browsers, historically, were cautious about caching content delivered over an HTTPS connection to disk—to a greater degree than required by the HTTP standard. In recent years, in response to the increased use of HTTPS for nonsensitive data, and the proliferation of bandwidthhungry AJAX and Web 2.0 sites, some browsers have been changed to strictly follow the standard, and cache HTTPS content far more aggressively than before. HTTPS web servers must explicitly include a response header to block standardscompliant browsers from caching the response to disk—and not all web developers have caught up to the new browser behavior. ISE identified 21 70% of sites tested financial, healthcare, insurance and utility account sites that failed to forbid browsers from storing cached content on disk, and as a result, after visiting these sites, unencrypted sensitive content is left behind on endusers machines.

Consumer/Enterprise Identity Realities in a Cloud/Mobile World
MD-07
Andy Zmolek
Director of Technology Partnerships
Divide
The rise of consumerdriven identity across web and mobile apps has made Google and Facebook the defacto identity providers for choice, not just for personal apps but increasingly for enterprise apps as well, because the cost and complexity of traditional enterprise identity approaches are struggling to remain relevant in a world where SaaS services and mobile apps value the speed and simplicity of these new identity models. In addition to consumerization, bring your own device trends mean enterprise mobile devices themselves are increasingly employeeowned with a mix of identities that are mostly under the control of the employee. This session will explore the implications for the app developer, the identity provider, the consumer/employee, and the enterprise. Well also look at the longterm ecosystem impacts that evolving identity models will have on how organizations and applications will interact with management, policy, and provisioning systems for applications and devices as identity moves deeper into both the cloud itself and the mobile devices we depend on.
