If you’ve not heard of Mykonos before, expect to hear more about them in the future. They launched their corporate website this week during the 2009 RSA Conference and showed off their security-oriented AJAX development platform/framework. At the Mykonos booth, the staff was happy to show off a slick MSN Instant Messaging application that was written within 72 hours using their framework. The application provided end-to-end encryption and served to demonstrate how powerful the framework was.
The Mykonos development framework boasts immunity to cross-site scripting, cross-site request forgery and session hijacking, click-jacking, phishing, and brute force attacks. This is both a powerful and dangerous statement that will force the framework to be put through its paces – obviously by a developer and not a lowly security guy like myself.
