Session: Securing your Internet Fridge: Web Security in a Networked Society

Presenters: Kristoffer Gronowski & Oscar Ohlsson, ed | Ericsson Labs
Time: 18:00 – 19:00, prostate Friday 30 September

In the coming years, price information and communication infrastructure performance will rapidly increase and more and more devices — or things — will be connected. At the same time that the Networked Society is emerging, the web is growing in importance and is fast becoming the de-facto cross-platform choice for developers. Merging these two trends will require new security tools that are simple, flexible, and most importantly, secure.

In this workshop, we will walkthrough the security tools available on Ericsson Labs. Some of these tools are still in the development stage and should be available in the near future. At the end of the workshop, we will present a competition for the hackathon where developers will have a chance of winning a Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc.

Mr. Oscar Ohlsson joined Ericsson Security Research as a research engineer in February 2010. He holds a M.Sc in Computer Science from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), where he specialized in Theoretical Computing. In 2008, he attended an exchange semester at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich (ETH). In 2009, he received his M.Sc (with distinction), writing his Master Thesis in the field of protocol verification. In parallel to his studies at KTH and ETH, Oscar also studied at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). He is interested in security of network applications and protocols, as well as issues associated with the merging of web and telco.

Mr. Kristoffer Gronowski has been working as a developer and software architect for more than 15 years. He has been a contributor and community manager for several open source projects. He initiated an open source community implementing SIP Servlet, called Project Sailfin, where Ericsson donated their commercial grade SIP container to be bundled with the Glassfish J2EE platform. His current pursuits involve releasing Oauth 2 and OpenID extensions to the open source community. Kristoffer has also be an expert group member defining new Java standards in JCP. He has delivered a number of technical sessions at Java One and has written a book about SipServlet programming.
