Sample text

The answer was simple: reread the course’s accompanying book every week and practice what you learn. The same is true for security education: you need to make sure that your not-so-security-savvy colleagues stay attuned to their security education. For example, the Secure Windows Initiative team at Microsoft employs a number of methods to accomplish this, including the following: ■ Create an intranet site that provides a focal point for security material. This should be the site people go to if they have any security questions.

For example, the excellent Code Complete (Microsoft Press, 1993), by Steve McConnell, makes little or no reference to security in its 850 pages. Don’t get me wrong: this is an exceptional book and one that should be on every developer’s bookshelf. Just don’t refer to it for security inspiration. fm Page 4 Wednesday, October 23, 2002 9:19 AM 4 Part I Contemporary Security Times have changed. In the Internet era, virtually all computers—servers, desktop personal computers, and, more recently, cell phones, pocket-size devices, and other form factor devices such as the AutoPC and embedded systems—are interconnected.

Incidentally, I had spotted only 54 flaws in the code. So the first person, who found a total of 55 flaws, had found one new flaw, and the second person, with 57 total flaws, had found the same new flaw as the first person plus two others! If it seems obvious that teaching people to recognize security flaws means that they will find more flaws, why do people continue to believe that untrained eyes and brains can produce more secure software? Important A handful of knowledgeable people is more effective than an army of fools.
