Software Developers get new guidelines on Unsafe Cryptographic Algorithms
The new manifesto of cryptographic algorithms for both encryption and hashing has been put together by a group of security experts from Fortify's Security Research Group. The manifesto will aid developers as they are writing code to avoid algorithms that security experts have deemed unsafe. The manifesto also sets out to prevent the misuse of algorithms that are sometimes abused.
Fortify customers will receive a new rulepack update that will automatically warn and advise developers about the misuse of cryptographic algorithms.
