Definition - What does Secure Coding mean?
Techopedia explains Secure Coding
The principle of secure coding is supported by various particular categorical strategies. For example, one strategy is to "validate input" to make sure that input comes from trusted sources. Another strategy is to check for buffer overflow vulnerability. In a general sense, developers look to design a secure user interface that limits the number of backdoors, loopholes and vulnerabilities that can invite cyber-attacks.
As the security community becomes more cognizant of common hacking and cyber-attack strategies, it builds appropriate security measures into newer platforms and devices. As a result, many of the traditional vulnerabilities in PC operating system environments have been engineered out of newer mobile or smartphone interfaces. However, as hackers, cyber-attackers and other "black hat" parties are also directing more attention toward mobile, this has become the new playground for secure coding and security work.
