The Secure Programming Council has released its first standard to ensure software developers can demonstrate they have the skills and knowledge to write secure software.

The Secure Programming Council has released its first standard to ensure software developers can demonstrate they have the skills and knowledge to write secure software.

The standard, combined with a standardised test of the skills covered in the standard, will enable employers to assure themselves that their developers have the necessary knowledge and skills to recognise errors in their own and other people's code, and write code that avoids most common errors.

It also allows large companies that outsource software development to measure how prepared their outsourcers are to write secure software.

The SANS security institute will help promote and oversee the standard, which will have a particular focus on Java software development.
