A year later we saw several decent attempts to create complete security tools designed to run with nothing else but web technologies. That was just the start.
This video from Hack in The Box 2012 aims to show the progress that has been made in the past six years in terms of security tools developed entirely with the help of browser technologies.
The presentation will take you on a journey through the years, exploring some of the interesting attack techniques used in the past, bringing back some of the important discussions and eventually reaching the culmination when modern tools and technologies will be shown and explained.
