Microsoft Adds Technical Updates to SDL Site

Microsoft releases a new round of updates and technical content additions to its Security Development Lifecycle website.

Microsoft has released a new wave of updates and technical content additions for its Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) website, which contains resources for securely developing and testing software.

These changes affect the SDL Developer Starter Kit, security tooling guidance, and compiler and cryptographic recommendations. Microsoft has consolidated its Security Tools recommendations, replaced BinScope with BinSkim, and published guidance to help developers with cryptography, among other updates. 

"Detailed Cryptographic Recommendations taken from Microsoft internal standards are now available for the first time – providing valuable guidance for developers looking to build cryptography into applications and services in line with Microsoft's own practices," Andrew Marshall, Microsoft's principal security program manager for security engineering wrote in a blog post today announcing the updates. 

The DSL updates are part of a broader investment to improve security at Microsoft, and the company promises additional changes in coming months.

Re: Proofreading 192.168.l.l
Expect from whom?  Expecting Dark Reading to fix the typo.

Re the doc, this is to serve as formal recommendations for developers.  Correct?  A good start would have been a cover page, and some sort of versioning/document ID/page numbering would have been nice, too. Digitally signed PDF with Microsoft IDd in the metatags would have been nice, too.

SDL perhaps?

Good read otherwise, even though I would have expected something a little more formal looking from them.
