    In this podcast Wes Reisz is talking to Anastasiia Voitova, known as @vixentael in the security communities. She started her career as a mobile application developer, and in recent years has moved to focus mainly on designing and developing graphics software. We’re going to talk about cryptography, how to design libraries to be usable by developers, and designing cryptographic libraries. We’ll also discuss about her talk from the recent QCon New York , called “Making Security Usable”. Why listen to this podcast: - Choosing a good encryption algorithm isn’t enough - the parameters need to be chosen carefully as well - Algorithms like MD5 should not be used for hashing any more - Security is not just the encryption layer - it is the design of the whole system - Backups should be encrypted as well - Logs may contain sensitive GDPR data and need to be processed accordingly More on this: Quick scan our curated show notes on InfoQ You can also subscribe to the InfoQ newsletter to receive weekly updates on the hottest topics from professional software development.
