• Secure code by force?

    12 May 2009

    The Senate Homeland Security Committee, in their infinite wisdom, prodded by SANS’ Alan Paller apparently believe they can legislate secure software from IT vendors.

    That’d be like legislating more secure health records, and personal financial information, and so on. Oh wait, that has been done. And it’s not working all that well as far as I can tell.

    That’d also be like legislating higher-quality cars. Ha! The Feds can work that out since they’re going to own that industry moving forward.

    Ahhh. Laws, laws, laws – they’re cropping up all over the place and are hardly doing anyone any good.
