Welcome to SecureDevelopment.org. We’re passionate at improving the ways that developers create secure software.
Our vision is to get every developer in the UK just one step better at software security. That means us; that means you; that means many thousands of other developers, both individuals and in teams.
How could anybody achieve that? We tackle it in three ways, with research, publication and promotion:
Research: We’re working with Security Lancaster and dozens of other researchers around the world: in UCL, University of Bristol, Saarland University, Paderborn University, Carnegie Mellon University, in UK government, and many other places. We’re learning things that few security experts know and none have publicised. We’re learning how programmers really react to security and how we can make secure development exciting and rewarding for those involved.
Publication: We’re publishing academic papers to prove through peer review what we have is valid. And we’re publishing how to guides like this website to help other people to help your and others learn what you want to know.
Promotion: We’re going out to conferences, to workshops, and to work with software development teams to help them and us discover the steps and enthusiasm that lead to software security.
What this means for you...
Do you want to protect your users? Do you want to keep them safe both from outside criminals and from each other? If so join us on our voyage of discovery into software security now.
