YUI Theater — Douglas Crockford: “Principles of Security” (60 min.)

By Ryan GroveApril 9th, 2012

In this talk from the March 5, 2012 BayJax event at Yahoo!, Douglas Crockford outlines the basic principles of designing secure software, with a focus on web applications. With his usual sardonic wit, he starts at the beginning (almost literally — with the invention of language itself) and makes a strong case for designing secure software based on fundamental principles rather than specific techniques, tricks, or hacks.



  1. Don’t suppose the YUI Theater can double up with Vimeo or so as YouTube sometimes has errors that take forever (feels like it) to recover from.

  2. Really nice talk, I’d love to get a hand on the slides. Are they published anywhere?
