So, you wanna crypto (in AEM)

So another year passed by and I will talk (again , ...) at the Connect WE conference. This year with Damien Antipa we will have a speech entitled So, you wanna crypto (in AEM) . Now, is true that even symmetric encryption isn't a “solved problem” but hey we still need to protect information et al :)
Now is probably well known that messing up with cryptography isn't that hard :p
Luckily Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) offers a great suite of cryptography capabilities as :
  • Encryption and decryption API
  • Integrity protection API
  • Key pair generation
  • TrustStore/KeyStore support
In this talk we will show how to use those low level building crypto building blocks to solve scalability and resilience problems i.e. improving the efficiency of load balancing with horizontal scalability  and providing a transparent stateless CSRF framework.
