Embedded Cybersecurity Through Secure Coding Standards CWE and CERT

In this whitepaper, we break down CERT and CWE and discuss how to implement a rigorous standards-based development process.

Parasoft Security Solutions Automated Software Testing

No matter where your software runs, software security is important and achievable with a rigorous standards-based development process.

Most organizations are coding at least some security testing, usually in the form of black-box testing, penetration testing, or red teams. This is important, but the best engineering approach is to build better, more secure software in the first place. Two common cybersecurity coding standards, CWE and CERT provide a great place to get started. In this whitepaper, we breakdown these coding standards and discuss how to implement a rigorous standards-based development process.
