Security practitioners advocate ideals through clichés and analogies to help others understand complex problems.  One prominent analogy espouses baking security into a solution instead of bolting security on at the end.  This seems like an obvious analogy – a baker certainly can’t add flour to a cake after it’s in the oven.  In business reality, time-to-market beats security every day of the week.  How can an architect bake security into solutions when the extra time could result in a failed venture?  This talk explores the realities of blending security into the design and implementation of solutions with a goal of realizing better is not the enemy of perfect.  Some implementations bolt on security beautifully; other design patterns prove impossible to correct.  Look forward to a meme-filled tour of architectures, design patterns, and lessons learned that will help security practitioners and business people identify if they’re cooking soup or baking cakes (…if that sounds like a mixed metaphor, don’t be late for supper).
