2-Days Training on How to Build Secure Electron Applications
We are excited to present our brand-new class on Electron Security! This blog post provides a general overview of the 2-days workshop.
With the increasing popularity of the ElectronJs Framework, we decided to create a class that teaches students how to build and maintain secure desktop applications that are resilient to attacks and common classes of vulnerabilities. Building secure Electron applications is possible, but complicated. You need to know the framework, follow its evolution, and constantly update and devise in depth defense mechanisms to mitigate its deficiencies.
Our training begins with an overview of Electron internals and the life cycle of a typical Electron-based application. After a quick intro, we will jump straight into threat modeling and attack surface. We will analyze what are the common root causes for misconfigurations and vulnerabilities. The class will be centered around two main topics: subverting the framework and breaking the custom application code. We will present security misconfigurations, security anti-patterns, nodeIntegration and sandbox bypasses, insecure preload bugs, prototype pollution attacks, affinity abuses and much more.
The class is hands-on with many live examples. The exercises and scenarios will help students understand how to identify vulnerabilities and build mitigations. Throughout the class, we will also have a few Q&A panels to answer all questions attendees might have and potentially review their code.
If you’re interested, check out this short teaser:
