Security must be established from the moment application coding begins ­ for the simple reason that the cost of fixing a security flaw grows astronomically as the application evolves. A study by IBM's Systems Sciences Institute found that the relative cost of fixing software defects after deployment is nearly 15 times greater than the cost of detecting and eliminating them during development. In order to secure applications while minimizing costs, vendors are calling on developers to take more responsibility for delivering secure applications that are resistant to attack. However, few developers have the training or tools needed to implement security at the inception of development. While learning to write secure code is a complex process that should be taught in universities, internal training seminars, and industry conferences, understanding the following five co... (more)
