“This article is a first in series that deals with secure programming and related issues. Before we begin though, let’s first define secure programming. A ‘secure program’ is an application that sits on a security boundary, taking input from a source that does not have the same access rights as the program. Such programs include application programs used as viewers of remote data, web applications (including CGI scripts), network servers, and setuid/setgid programs.”
