LXer: Open source good for security

Published at LXer:

The key to IT security is secure software - software that is written with not only features, but also security, in mind, says David Jacobson, technical director at Linux services company Synaq. However, says Jacobson, software is seldom developed with an eye on back-end security requirements. Developers are usually under pressure to deliver on required features within tight deadlines which leave little time to check for vulnerabilities each step of the way. The result is that most software is inherently vulnerable.
