SAFECode Releases Updated Guidance on Secure Development Practices

ARLINGTON, Va. Feb. 8, 2011 Fundamental Practices for Secure Software Development: A Guide to the Most Effective Secure Development Practices in Use Today .  

Paul Kurtz

In addition to providing updated security practices that should be applied during the design, development and testing activities in the software development lifecycle, the new edition of the report aims to address an important challenge for those managing software security programs – the need to verify that the development teams followed prescribed security practices.  For each listed practice, SAFECode has included verification methods and tools that can be used to help confirm whether a practice was applied.   Further, SAFECode has included Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) references for each practice to provide a more detailed illustration of the security issues these practices aim to resolve.

"Software vendors have both a responsibility and a business incentive to ensure software security," said Kurtz. "SAFECode encourages software developers to not only consider, tailor and adopt the practices outlined in this paper, but to also continue to contribute to a broad industry dialogue on advancing secure software development."
