Secure Coding, by Joseph Patarcity of LM-RMS
 
Secure Coding is writing computer software with the perspective of security.  Defects, bugs and logic flaws are the traditional source of exploitable vulnerabilities.  In an internet-of-things age, it is important now more than ever to consider the security implications of the code we write on a day to day basis.  We will review key terms, notable exploits and their consequences, and look at C/C++ examples of commonly exploited defects, bugs and logic flaws, providing the perspective needed for secure coding.
