Write secure C and C++ code -- and avoid the software defects most likely to cause exploitable vulnerabilities! Straight from the world-renowned security experts at CERT/CC, this book identifies the root causes of today's most widespread software vulnerabilities, shows how they can be exploited, reviews the potential consequences, and presents secure alternatives. Fully updated for the new C++11 standard, Secure Coding in C and C++, Second Edition presents extensive new coverage of strings, dynamic memory management, integer security, and many other topics -- including an entirely new chapter on writing secure concurrent code. It contains hundreds of Windows- and Linux-based examples of secure code, insecure code, and exploits; comprehensive practical guidance for adopting modern security best practices; and important new insights for developing a security mindset that can help you protect software against tomorrow's attacks, not just today's. This edition also provides unique access to CERT's pioneering Online Learning Initiative (OLI) course on secure coding, originally funded by Cisco, Siemens, and other industry leaders to provide internal training to their own mission-critical developers. For every C/C++ developer who wants to write more secure code. von Seacord, Robert C.
