- Montreal 2010
Application platforms, such as the Yahoo! Application Platform (YAP), Facebook, or Myspace, have become a core foundation of social web infrastructures. When constructing a platform to run applications, numerous layers of security and technology need to work off of each other in order to generate a secure, versatile system.
This talk will cover the core technologies behind the creation of a platform to host 3rd party applications. We will explore open technologies such as OpenID and OAuth for user verification, OpenSocial for architecture implementations, and the use of front-end security implementations such as Caja. This will explore the benefits and exploits from each of the implementations and the importance of open source technologies.
