Serverless rocks the security boat. Ad-hoc servers we don’t manage rids us of certain security concerns, while the proliferation of cheap micro services raises others. In this talk, we’ll experience these security concerns live. We’ll break into a vulnerable Spring Cloud Function based application and exploit multiple weaknesses, helping you better understand the mistakes you can make, their implications, and how you can avoid them.

Five hacks in Five minutes


In this session, you will see FIVE security hacks, including a directory traversal, Cross Site Scripting, Regular Expression Denial of Service, NoSQL injection and type manipulation. If we have time, we'll also show both an Apache Struts attack and Spring Data Rest exploit that can both execute remote commands on your servers! Come along it you want to see Simon collapse after blundering through five minutes of typos.
