Python Security & Cryptography


Jose Ortega - Python Security & Cryptography [EuroPython 2015] [22 July 2015] [Bilbao, Euskadi, Spain]

The talk would aim to introduce cryptography and security from the developer point of view, showing ways to encrypt information with Python scripts and more sensitive information in web applications using django.

I will introduce to security in python ,showing some libraries that allow encryption and decryption like PyCrypto or M2Crypto,comparing theses libraries with the cryptography module.At the same time,I will show the main ciphers and hashing algorithms used in these libraries like AES,DES,RSA and some examples illustrating each case.I wil show other techniques like steganography for hiding information in files(images,documents,programs) with some libraries like Stepic or ezPyCrypto.

Finally,I will comment OWASP Python Security Project where we can find some useful practices and secure coding guidelines for detecting potential security vulnerabilities in our applications like SQL injection or Cross-site scripting.
