Anthony Ferrara:
Our Failure As An Industry
May 07, 2013 @ 09:19:34

Anthony Ferrara has a new post to his site today describing what he sees as a failure in our industry - letting security become an after-thought to the development process.

In the April issue of the PHPArch magazine (also published on her blog), Elizabeth Tucker Long wrote a really interesting editorial piece coining a concept she called Security-Driven-Development. She (quite correctly) identified a problem in the current development community where security has become an after-thought (if it's thought of at all). This isn't a new concept, in fact it's a concept that I and many others have been preaching for quite a while now. However I've been coming to realize that I've had it wrong the whole time. And I think the entire industry is getting it wrong today.

He talks some about the current state of web application development and how, even with more powerful technologies than ever, we still fall short in security testing. He suggests that the current way of doing things - treating security testing as a "throw it over the wall" or "someone else's job" problem - needs to stop. Security needs to be integrated with development and he suggests that managers and developers of open source projects should take the lead.
