Today, SAFECode released an important document entitled, “Fundamental Practices for Secure Software Development” aimed at helping software producers create more secure software.

The document is unique in that it describes what SAFECode members are doing in practice to raise the security bar; it’s not a theoretical or academic document.

I believe the fact that it describes what’s used in practice is what makes the document important because it means the ideas in the document can be implemented in the real world regardless of the type of software under development.

So take a look, and let me know what you think.
