Security in Web Applications Slides

This is the source code for a slide deck used in a 30-minute presentation on security considerations in Web applications.

Build Instructions

Prerequisites

You need Ruby and Bundler. The other prerequisites are in the Gemfile.

sudo apt-get install -y ruby rubygems
sudo gem install rake bundler
bundle install

You need some PHP-enabled Web server to run the demo code in the slide.

Building the Deck

Issue the following command in the presentation’s root directory. The presentation’s entry point is html/all.html.

bundle exec rake all

Contributions

All errata is welcome, especially in the form of patches.

Codex and S5

The deck is built using Dave Thomas’ codex slide compile, which in turn uses Eric Meyer’s S5 slideshow renderer.

The best introduction to codex is the default slide deck generated by its “codex” command.
