OWASP, Mumbai Chapter - 1st Meet - 24-June-06

I presented on Secure Coding Fundamentals and elucidated the Cost factor inculcated due to insecure code resulting in Network Cost, Productivity Cost and so on. Further explaining the basic reasons of threat to code, I explained how the mistakes done by the Programmers, I/O, API Abuse, Environment & Configuration and Time & State were responsible for Security flaws in an application. Moving ahead, I laid down a few principles to be followed as Secure Coding – General Guidelines for all the languages and specific Secure Coding Guidelines for C & C++, Java and .NET
