DESCRIPTION:  Backdoors and Other Developer 'Introduced Features'

              Veracode Founder and CTO Chris Wysopal will discuss recently
              completed research on the subject of backdoors --
              vulnerabilities embedded within application code by
              developers that enable them to bypass authentication or
              other security controls. Chris will examine the
              classification of those backdoors that have been detected
              in applications and provide real world examples of
              application backdoors, a generalization of the mechanisms
              they use, and strategies for detecting these mechanisms
              (including static analysis of source and binary code).
