While my primary involvement at Adobe happens to be around the ActionScript language, I also have some background in security, and recently I have been thinking about channeling some of that into designing and implementing tools for secure programming in ActionScript. ActionScript programs are compiled to run as Flash applications (on the web) or as AIR applications (on the personal computer / mobile device); as such, they are run on platforms with security models, and their security on those platforms is controlled by various security mechanisms, both at the language-level as well as at the platform-level.

Adobe Whitepaper – Rich Internet applications Across Devices: The Emergence Of Contextual Applications
“At Adobe, we believe that this is a pivotal time in the history of software development. Cloud-based computing has combined with increased user expectations for interactivity and engaging experiences leading to the rise of rich Internet application (RIA) development. The creation of social networks and platform as a service (PaaS) offerings is enabling applications to grow at unprecedented rates by leveraging existing user networks. The expanding number and diversity of Internet-connected devices has opened up additional software development platforms for developers and enabled them to create entirely new user interaction models and business opportunities. Together, these three technology trends are converging to deliver major innovations that will have lasting effects on the way web applications are built, delivered, and used.”
