Securing today’s applications is often a painful and confusing
process, but it doesn’t have to be. Apache Shiro is a flexible
open-source security framework that simplies the four cornerstones of
application security: authentication, authorization, enterprise session management and cryptography. With Shiro’s easy-to-understand API, you can quickly and easily secure any application – from the smallest mobile applications to the largest web and enterprise applications.
Les Hazlewood, Apache Shiro PMC Chair, will explain all of Shiro’s
core features and demonstrate how to secure your own applications
successfully and easily.
