ABOUT JERRY

About Me

Do you use Google or Bing? Both use technology which utilize intellectual property I developed. Are you running anti- virus software? There's a good chance I had a hand in some of the technology it uses. How about a printer? If you've used one from HP which has an ink cartridge system made after 2009 there's a good chance I worked on elements of the security model surrounding validation of the cartridge. Have you seen those HP printers which come with printing applications? I was the guy that made sure those applications can't be easily used by a bad guy to compromise your printer and in turn your network and computer.

For nearly two decades I've focused and honed my application security skill-set pertaining to the development, implementation and review of application platforms. I'm currently working on a groundbreaking cloud based mitigation service which could change the way organizations look at the web and mobile application threat space (United States Patent 9,083,736).

MONITORING AND MITIGATING CLIENT-SIDE EXPLOITATION OF APPLICATION FLAWS

Issued , 01 / 2013

US Patent: 9,083,736

·

Inventors: Jerry Decime, Cale Smith · http://www.google.com/patents/US9083736

A system for monitoring and mitigating client-side exploitation of application flaws, the system comprising a client device operating an application, a server communicatively coupled to the client device, and an application flaw service module communicatively coupled to the client device and server in which the application flaw service module receives a request from the client device comprising transactional metadata and inspecting the transactional metadata for malicious content within the request. A method of monitoring and mitigating client-side exploitation of application flaws by adding computer usable program code to the response to a first request from a client, receiving a second request from the client, determining that transactional metadata within the response contains an attack vector, and returning a response to the browser including attack vector countermeasures embedded in the response.
