What's hardest to get right with Node.js at the moment? A recent survey reveals that Security is one of the top concerns for most of the Node.js developers. In this regard, over thousand publicly published Node package vulnerabilities could be our best companion.
Analyzing these vulnerabilities reveals useful insights regarding common security mistakes done by the package authors. This presentation brings forth distilled findings that would help the audience avoiding security issues in their own application code, conducting security reviews, and vetting external project dependencies.
This presentation covers statistics and patterns related to:
* Frequently occurring vulnerabilities
* Distribution of vulnerabilities by severity
* Effectiveness of CLI tools to detect insecure project dependencies
Further, the presentation highlights common programming mistakes behind some of the top vulnerabilities.
The information gained from this presentation would help the audience to avoid common security issues when developing their own Node.js packages and applications; or identify possible security vulnerabilities when conducting security-focused code reviews and penetration testing for the Node.js applications.
