Reviews - What do our customers think?
Just like the title says - this book gives ' foundations ' of security what every programmers needs to know  Nov 18, 2008
This book is very well written and easy to understand. I like the selection of software security topics it covers - blending of design principles and methodology with a mix of programming techniques.

Upon completion of the book, the reader should have a good basic computer security foundation.
Alphabet soup with no practical guidance on security  Dec 14, 2007
I found this book as a collection of google-able basic material. The book provides zero guidance to a programmer on the basics for how-to implement security in code not just alphabet soup because "the devil is in the details". I wrongly picked this book and now it just fills an odd spot of our IT library as this book has no relevance to a Microsoft or Java programmer or Web 2.0 (J*Script) programmer. With Security taking mainstream in every aspect of programming and every component of IT stack - this book did not provide any confidence to an average developer aspiring to securing SOA or J2EE/.NET application. As a whole, the book reflects poorly on the technical content maybe I am not the intended audience of this book.
Easy to enjoy  Oct 19, 2007
Having an English major as one of the authors makes a big difference. The expertise from the other two reknown authors is communicated in simple, easy-to-understand language.
Programming with Security in Mind  Apr 19, 2007
An excellent book for new programmers. The first part of the book provides a very good overview of security concepts. Chapters 5-10 detail different attacks and their defense. At 290 pages, the authors don't waste the reader's time. Information is well covered with enough detail for most readers.

Throughout the book the authors present code examples on exploits and their defense. Even through the examples are written in different languages, the authors explain the code clearly. The reader doesn't' have to be familiar with the particular language. I haven't written anything in Java in over six years, but had no problem understand the Java examples.

If you are a new programmer or haven't read a book on security recently, this would be the book.
Bleeding Edge Security Advice for Programmers  Apr 15, 2007
While some of the good security books for software developers need to be updated, this is, in my opinion, a much needed new security book for programmers. It is clear yet not too formal with good examples. Even if you have done a bit of security programming, chapters 7 and on are definitely worth the read.

Although this book doesn't have all the answers (e.g. no comparison of web programming languages), web programmers will not be disappointed and my guess is that most web programmers need to read this book.

The authors work at Google and are dealing with some of the nastiest problems the Internet has to offer. They are very good communicators, have written some of the best recent papers and I'm glad to see Neil Daswani just started a blog on blogspot.
