The Latest Secure Coding
Secure coding is very important in software development to ensure code security is high using techniques such as static analysis, code auditing and dynamic analysis to ensure safe coding practices are followed.
What Tools can be used for Secure Coding?
There are a variety of tools to ensure code safety, mostly based on source code auditing and static analysis.
The options available really depend on the language being used with some tools focusing on many languages such as Yasca – Multi-Language Static Analysis Toolset or specialist tools focusing on a single language like Brakeman – Static Analysis Rails Security Scanner.

Honggfuzz is a general-purpose fuzzing tool. Given a starting corpus of test files, Hongfuzz supplies and modifies input to a test program and utilize the ptrace() API/POSIX signal interface to detect and log crashes. Basically it’s a simple, easy to use via command-line interface, providing nice analysis of software crashes in a simple form of […]
It’s not the first time someone has pulled this off, back in November 2009 we wrote about Using Cloud Computing To Crack Passwords – Amazon’s EC2. Add that with a story way back from 2007 – Graphics Cards – The Next Big Thing for Password Cracking? – and you’ve got yourself an interesting combo with […]
DllHijackAuditor is the smart tool to Audit against the Dll Hijacking Vulnerability in any Windows application. This is recently discovered critical security issue affecting almost all Windows systems on the planet. It appears that large amount of Windows applications are currently susceptible to this vulnerability which can allow any attacker to completely take over the […]
The WinAppDbg python module allows developers to quickly code instrumentation scripts in Python under a Windows environment. It uses ctypes to wrap many Win32 API calls related to debugging, and provides an object-oriented abstraction layer to manipulate threads, libraries and processes, attach your script as a debugger, trace execution, hook API calls, handle events in […]
Binary analysis is imperative for protecting COTS (common off-the-shelf) programs and analyzing and defending against the myriad of malicious code, where source code is unavailable, and the binary may even be obfuscated. Also, binary analysis provides the ground truth about program behavior since computers execute binaries (executables), not source code. However, binary analysis is challenging […]
