NSA Publishes Guidance on Software Memory Security Concerns


The National Security Agency (NSA) has published guidelines on how businesses can put defenses in place against frequent problems with software memory safety.

Memory safety issues, which are frequently the most frequent cause of vulnerabilities, can also result in improper program behavior and performance degradation.

The first step in eradicating memory safety problems, according to the NSA, is the use of a programming language that does not predispose users to these vulnerabilities.
