Manager, Software Engineering, Progress
David Moloney is a software architect for the OpenEdge products at Progress Software. He has long been a lead on OpenEdge DataServer products but is transitioning his focus over to OpenEdge security.
David started at Progress back in the days of the "Progress/400" product where he helped spearhead the effort to deliver an IBM midrange server OpenEdge product (iSeries). Along with many years improving the Oracle and MS SQL Server products, David has worked on a number of AVM client projects and security initiatives.
David provided technical mentorship for much of the staffing at the PSI development office in Hyderabad, India. Alongside product architecture, David also helps to manage a portion of the development staff.
David has been a regular speaker at Exchange, NEXT and sometimes PUG events. While a longtime domain expert on DataServers, he is now working on architectures for many new initiatives in the OpenEdge space and has started a long term, collaborative, initiative to improve OpenEdge end to end security infrastructure.
David graduated Boston College many moons ago (think Doug Flutie era). Hobbies?... well, name your home improvement project and I can guarantee he's tried it at least once.

Beyond the Code: Securing a Cloud Application
In this session, we will demystify the various technologies available to secure your infrastructure, OpenEdge business logic and database in a cloud deployment. We will define and provide best practices for applying Spring Security as the foundation of the Progress Application Server for OpenEdge, third-party tokens such as OAuth (the open authentication and authorization standard) and SAML (the standard protocol for web-browser Single Sign-on), accessing the database via the OpenEdge Authentication Gateway and LDAP, and the relationship and differing responsibilities of the OpenEdge Authentication Gateway and external token providers.
