Cryptography pioneer: We need good code

In Black Hat keynote, Whitfield Diffie formulates three rules for making applications secure in the age of the Internet

By Loek Essers | IDG News Service
1. First you have to know what you have to do,” If a developer knows exactly what the purpose is of the application is going to be, the software becomes more secure.2. programmers need to write good code, Diffie said.

3.  “All good code is expensive,” and more money should be spend on writing really good code so applications can become secure, he said.

 

From me personally. I think the idea to have a Good Code is a GOOD IDEA 🙂

Thanks,

This is surprise to me, but from now I'll check all my new destinations for a such problem.

They make money on us, but they don’t want to provide any real good service. I was in such situations personally for many times. “Free cheese in a mouse trap only”.
