Writing Secure Programs
Writing secure code can be easy. Thinking about what is being written and how it can be exploited has to be part of the design criteria. Testing methods should be devised to check for various types of attacks or misuse. Fully automating these tests is a luxury that can go a long way to getting a superior product to the consumer. The techniques and tools discussed here are only helpers. The development of secure programs still rests in the hands and minds of the developers.
