Patterns for securing architectures

Security is all about trade-offs you make with your always limited resources, often a problem when designing a system or an after-thought. Only a few have the expertise to design good security and most development teams have no security expert. This talk focuses on Security Patterns for designing security in architectures, such as Role-based Access Control, Single Access Point, and Front Door.

Peter Sommerlad is professor for software engineering and head of Institute for Software at HSR Hochschule für Technik, Rapperswil. Peter is co-author of the books Pattern-oriented Software Architecture Vol.1 and Security Patterns. His research interests are refactoring for non-Java languages and a goal of making software simpler by decremental development: Refactoring software to 10% its size.
