Learn about secure coding standards in this video.
- [Instructor] In order to help reduce the attack surface…of an application that your team is developing…it is considered an industry wide best practice…to use secure coding standards.…Secure coding standards have been developed…through a community effort…for each of the major programming languages.…The Computer Emergency Response Team, or CERT…has led many of the efforts…to create a secure coding base standard.…This includes standards…for most of the frequently used languages…such as C, C++, Java, Perl, and many more.…
The National Institute of Standards and Technology…or NIST, has also provided some guidance…towards secure coding standards.…But they're not nearly as in-depth…as those provided by CERT.…The use of the secure coding standards…helps to bake in security…from the earliest development of an application.…This helps make the application much easier to defend…and a lot cheaper to produce…then trying to bolt on security after the fact.…
