Security of the BEAM

BEAMers handle customer's data with utmost care since we believe protecting data is one of the most basic obligations of any company. Achieving our goal requires more effort since the Erlang ecosystem was designed for private networks where the concern about malicious users performing attacks was not given relevance. Therefore, every day we must have a security aware mindset: we must put on our security hat to design, develop and review code changes going into production. 

Join Viktória to explore the challenges that today's Erlang systems are faced with, analyse the vulnerabilities exists in Erlang, learn how to apply the principles of secure design to software projects running on the BEAM and learn about the tools exists today that can help in security reviews.
