Security is an often understated problem in high growth emerging branches of IT like big data and IoT. Elasticsearch is a great example because support for security not only came late, but it's a quite convoluted, non-open, and very expensive solution.

Learn how Simone Scarduzio lead his Open Source project ReadonlyREST to become the solution of choice for many. From hackathon hustlers to Fortune500 corporates.

ReadonlyREST is simple yet powerful because it leverages the concept of access control list (yes, like firewalls). We'll go through some creative use cases and business concepts made possible by the creative use of ReadonlyREST and its configuration model.
