Secure coding guidelines
The Secure Coding Guideline is a list of application security controls that must be integrate as part the coding of the application. The Secure Coding Guideline can be used by architects, developers, security professionals, and even consumers to define how to develop application in a secure way. The Secure Coding Guideline is a helpful tool that have to be integrated into the development lifecycle.
Describe our Service
The aim of the Secure Coding Guideline is to serve as an easy reference, to help developers quickly understand secure coding practices. It contains a list of best practices with explanations and with code examples for several programing languages. It helps developer to understand what application controls they need to use, how to develop a secured application controls and how to defend against most of the application attacks.
The CWE (Common Weakness Enumeration) includes more than 700 types of application vulnerabilities, i.e. vulnerabilities which a developer may include in the application. In most cases it occurs due to a lack of knowledge, the developers are rarely trained in secure development in universities, colleges and other institutions where they learn software development and as a result the developed applications contain many vulnerabilities.
The Secure Coding Guideline is another tool that helps developers understand how do develop secured application and how to fix vulnerabilities that were found in their applications’ source code. This guide helps avoid introduction of vulnerabilities into the code during its writing, which improves the time-to-market for each new piece of code.
