Rugged Software Manifesto

Igår presenterades The Rugged Software Manifesto på SANS Application Security Summit 2010 i USA. En av de tre författarna är Jeff Williams, orförande i OWASP-stiftelsen. Det kan nog kortas ner lite men det är vettiga levnadsregler för utvecklare som vill att deras mjukvara ska klara sig på nätet.

  • I am rugged... and more importantly, my code is rugged.
  • I recognize that software has become a foundation of our modern world.
  • I recognize the awesome responsibility that comes with this foundational role.
  • I recognize that my code will be used in ways I cannot anticipate, in ways it was not designed, and for longer than it was ever intended.
  • I recognize that my code will be attacked by talented and persistent adversaries who threaten our physical, economic, and national security.
  • I recognize these things - and I choose to be rugged.
  • I am rugged because I refuse to be a source of vulnerability or weakness.
  • I am rugged because I assure my code will support its mission.
  • I am rugged because my code can face these challenges and persist in spite of them.
  • I am rugged, not because it is easy, but because it is necessary... and I am up for the challenge.
