Secure Development Series: Security Mentality

A new video focused on the “Security Mentality” in the secure programming series has been released. Some interesting things are covered about how developers think about security and why they accidentally introduce security flaws into their systems. As a corollary to Bruce Schneier’s law, Josh offers “Any developer can build an application so secure that he or she cannot exploit it.” Please watch the videos for some ideas about cheating and about how to avoid the biases in your own thinking. As a bonus, you can find out a number of ways to hide 100 digits of Pi :). Also, there is a surprise quiz in this video, remember to think “outside the box!” Part 1 and Part 2.
