The Microsoft Developer Security Resource Kit

*not including shipping and handling

The new Microsoft Developer Security Resource Kit brings together a host of valuable resources to help you integrate security features and procedures into your development process. In it you'll find:

  • Ways to protect your code from the most common security vulnerabilities.
  • Sample code you can use with Microsoft Visual Studio Team System or Visual Studio 2003 to see security features in action.
  • Access to online communities so you can connect with other security-minded developers.
  • Tools to analyze your code for security flaws, detect errors, and test for compatibility issues.
  • Technical articles for an in-depth look at important security issues.

In addition, you will be able to receive notice of future updates to these resources as content is added and revised, so it's a great way to stay on top of the security issues that affect developers.

Combined with the power of Visual Studio 2005, the Developer Security Resource Kit gives you an integrated resource that lets you move seamlessly from information to implementation, so you can put what you learn to use quickly and easily.
