State of crypto in Node.js - Talk.JS + Talk.CSS = JSConf.Asia Special!

Published on: Wednesday, 12 June 2019

Speaker: Ujjwal Sharma

Cryptography is all around us, and that’s a good thing. In a world that increasingly depends on data, leveraging cryptography is mandatory for any modern application that deals with private user data.

As a Node.js core team member, I will focus on the current state of cryptography in Node.js regarding security, interoperability and performance: What has happened, what is about to happen? What are our long-term plans?

Node.js is made for the web and already well-equipped for the challenges of cryptography in today’s applications! You will come away with a deeper understanding of some of these challenges and how to solve them using the Node.js crypto module (and how not to!).
