Secure Coding: As a basic Security Paradigm
Abstract—In today’s era of technology, issues related to data security and privacy have become a major concern and a challenging problem. Every program or data is a potential target of an attacker. So, to better secure the data is an important aspect of the study because attacker will not be able to find the security vulnerabilities and gain access to the data. Secure coding is a practice or process of writing the secure programs that are immune to attack by a malicious user. In this paper, we have highlighted how different secure coding practices can be employed to avoid buffer overflow, buffer underflow and string manipulation vulnerabilities. Apart from this, we have also given a brief explanation of how to avoid SQL injection attacks using secure programming.
Index Terms— Security, vulnerabilities, attack, SQL injection, threat, Buffer overflow, Buffer underflow.
