This trip was great. We met many of familiar people and got acquaintance with new ones. There were topics of current concern discussed at the conference among them were security of WEB 2.0, mobile devices, client-side applications, and SAP security — this issue was covered in two completely different reports (one by me and one by Mariano Nunez Di Croce) which aim was to demonstrate that SAP was accessible not only to employees of inside of a company and there were many ways how to gain access to SAP through of the Internet both by means of SAPRouter and WEB-application vulnerabilities and SAP client applications.
