Come meet the author of ‘HTML5 Security’, Carsten Eilers.
Carsten sees himself as the “bad boy” for many developers. “I find the vulnerabilities in a web application which they thought to be secure or I’m the one who tells them that their new, cool feature is a nightmare from a security point of view and should better be abandoned and not implemented.”
Carsten is the best resource developers can find, when it comes to security; he can inform us how an attacker will misuse their application and how to repel these attacks.
“Every developer takes a constructive view on his work and any application he implements. He looks for ways to make them useful for the users. I go the opposite, the destructive way: If I look at an application, I only see possibilities to misuse it against users and operators.”
In his spare time, Carsten mainly likes constructive work, reading, walking and writing.
