Engage with Us

We invite software developers to work with us to improve the security of their code and the practice of programming with popular development languages.

Explore the Secure Coding Certificate Programs

Our Secure Coding certificate programs, one for Java and the other for C and C++, enable software developers to eliminate security vulnerabilities before products ship.

Join the Secure Coding Wiki

Work with us to develop new secure coding rules and guidelines by participating as a commenter, or even a co-developer, of rules and guidelines on the Secure Coding wiki. We host wiki spaces for the discussion of C, C++, Java, and Perl languages as well as the Android platform.
