The RSAConference 2009 in San Francisco has kicked off with the announcement of an initiative to give developers free access to application security tools.

The RSA Share Project is aimed at both corporate and independent software developers to encourage the development of inherently secure applications.

RSA, the security division of EMC, is offering as part of the project a no-cost download of the RSA BSAFE Share encryption toolkit.

The toolkit will enable developers to add and integrate encryption into their applications.

Developers signing up to the RSA Share Project will also have access to an online community of security experts to provide support, answers and strategies.

The RSAConference runs for the rest of this week, with the first keynote address tomorrow by Art Coviello, EMC executive vice-president and RSA president.
