Security 101: Security Core Concepts... Where Do You Start?

What are the core security concepts behind understanding, properly architecting and building a secure solution? Have you heard of trust, least trust, authentication, authorization, integrity, non-repudiation, cryptography, PKI, SSL, DMZ, SSO, delegation, and more? This session will look at core security concepts and the roles they play in a secure solution. We will also look at how secure SSL really makes a system: Is it enough or not?
