Security SIG: Penn Medicine Academic Computing (PMACS) CEAL, enhancing database security

| 2:00pm to 3:30pm Bits & Pieces, Room 306 Sansom Place West

PMACS's CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) Enforced Data Access Layer (CEAL) protects Penn Medicine's data against variety of attacks. It does so by restricting the web server's database access such that internal data is not accessible to anyone who is unauthorized. Malicious attempts to carry out a traditional attack (e.g., a SQL injection attack) would be unable to manipulate any data other than that for which the attacker is already authorized.
