Coding Resources

When it comes to being a software developer one of your tasks is to build software using robust, maintainable and testable code. This is true but do you take into consideration security? There are many ways in which security can be beefed up. Uploading your files using FTP is a method which is not recommended anymore. All data should be encrypted so SFTP would be more secure.

Are you storing your code on GitHub? Don’t forget to add sensitive files, such as passwords and environmental variables to the .gitignore.

Securing your APIs from abuse is one particular challenge. One such method is to limit the number of requests to an endpoint to protect it from overuse, which can disrupt traffic. If your API is private you must ensure that authentication has been added to prevent illegitimate traffic from accessing your secure data.

With security breaches on the rise, developers must ensure that they have made their software secure by updating the software and hardware it resides on. Monitoring the vital components and the traffic that runs through it will further improve the software.

Remember that roughly 95% of data breaches are due to human error so aim to minimise the risk by being security conscious.

WOW Tool Of The Month

Are you looking for a comprehensive gallery of icons for your latest project? Icons Gallery has over 10,000 icons which can be copied or exported as an SVG. It contains libraries such as Material Design, Cupertino, Icofont, Bootstrap and Ionic. It also features a convenient search function which displays the icons you need from all the libraries.
