Mario Heiderich

Dr.-Ing. Mario Heiderich is from Berlin, Germany, earned his doctorate at the Ruhr-University in Bochum, and focuses on client-side security, specifically covering scripting-based attacks and defences. Mario proposes the omnipresent problem of Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) only to be solvable where it executes: in the DOM of a user-agent. He presented his ideas in his doctoral thesis and accompanied his post-doctoral work by releasing an open-source library that addresses XSS, DOM Clobbering and other attacks without being a pain to use.
