🎤 Security in the browser - Keeping the sandbox safe
Tommy Parnell - Senior Software Engineer
Today, cross site scripting attacks, remain a key place for hackers trying to gain private information of individuals. There are many attack vectors that still exist in browsers due to legacy compatibility, but there are features you can enable to prevent such issues. I'll be talking about the multitude of HTTP headers, and other mechanisms you can use to help prevent your customer's from having their information stolen, and how you can implement these mechanisms in common server frameworks such as ExpressJS.
