The planned Microsoft .NET Application Security Seminar was held on time (3:30) on Wednesday, 26th April 2006. The speakers were Mr. Rai Yawar and Mr. Kashif Akram. Mr. Akram first started his presentation on implementing security in .NET applications, covering both desktop and ASP.NET applications. He also focused on the one click deployment feature in .NET 2.0. Mr. Rai Yawar then followed, focusing on protecting distributed systems from hack attacks. He also focused on WSE 3.0.
Attendance wasn’t as high as expected, which is sad, since I was really excited about the topic of the Seminar, and expected people would be too. Security is an issue not covered extensively in academic material that we are taught.
At the end of the event, goodies were distributed amongst the audience and the speakers, since there were more goodies than the people left at the end of the event.
