Black Hat USA 2011: ToolsTube with Chris Schmidt on OWASP ESAPI API

ESAPI (The OWASP Enterprise Security API) is a free, open source, web application security control library that makes it easier for programmers to write lower-risk applications. The ESAPI libraries are designed to make it easier for programmers to retrofit security into existing applications. The ESAPI libraries also serve as a solid foundation for new development.

Chris Schmidt is an Application Security Engineer and Senior Software Engineer at Aspect Security. He is heavily involved in the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) as a leader, contributer, and frequent speaker at local and global application security conferences. He has worked in IT for more than 15 years as a Hardware Engineer, Software Engineer, and Systems Architect. He is one of the Project Managers for the OWASP Enterprise Security API and serves on the OWASP Global Projects Committee.
