The OWASP ESAPI for C Plus Plus has been under development for some time, and we introduced it to the community at AppSec DC 2012. ESAPI is a free, open source, application security control library that makes it easier for programmers to write lower-risk applications. The goal of the ESAPI for C++ is to be cross-platform, and compiler agnostic.
Here are some key takeaways from the presentation:
- ESAPI Project Overview, and why a C Plus Plus implementation is necessary.
- Our approach to porting the ESAPI for Java API and a demonstration.
- The future of ESAPI (3.0), and how to get involved.
