Your job as a defender is to reduce the attack surface of your environment and protect your infrastructure and data from being breached._x000D_ _x000D_ However we can't be involved in every decision that goes on in our organisation, and we don't always think the same as an attacker does._x000D_ _x000D_ This talk will introduce you to some common "bad smells" that might indicate security issues lurking under the surface of your infrastructure, applications and code, and help you develop your spidey sense so that you know when to raise the alarm.
“The time has come,” the ISO said, “To talk of many things: Of move-capture—and literals— Of making lambdas sing— And why deduction is so hot— And if digits should grow wings?”
So have you heard of the next C++ Standard? No, it is not C++11. Even though C++11 has just been ratified, C++14 will likely replace C++11 by next year. By now, we have enough experience with C++11 to know where we are missing various fingers and toes such as:
Why do we not have move capture in lambdas?
How about some real user-defined literal suffixes?
Why did we stop with monomorphic lambdas?
If lambda returns can be deduced, why not normal functions?
Could we get digit separators?
C++14 will be more than a bug-fix release, and will contain some important enhancements on top of C++11. It will remove some of the major annoyances from C++11, that we already know of. But more importantly, how will this change the language, library and some important idioms?
Windows Azure Storage provide massively scalable storage services with local and geo-redundancy. Organizations can store terabytes of data off-site and in a reliable, highly available and cost efficient manner. For those of you wishing to explore the capabilities of Windows Azure Storage there are bound to be a number of questions that will arise. Can a blob storage container really handle millions of blobs effectively? How efficient is a Table Storage query when the table contain over a billion entities? How can these data volumes be uploaded reliably and effectively? How can the usage and billing of a data intensive solution be monitored? This demo-intensive session will answer these questions and show how big data scenarios can be effectively implemented using Windows Azure Storage. The Windows Azure Storage API will be covered in depth, along with techniques to increase the speed and reduce the cost of uploading data to Windows Azure. A solution storing the 4.3 million articles that make up the English Wikipedia content and providing a simple text index search will be used as a case study.
