Senior programmer,pls give a guide for programmers (how u validate a program?)
As a senior programmer, what you will do when you have to validate and test a complete program/software/app?
What action you will take to validate a program?
The purpose for this thread is to refine our final project or application before submit or commercialize so that the product is well prepared or complete.
greatest risk comes from within
Basic work is as posted here by xcallmejudasx, and we have some other issues that resolve on the experienced workers approach of only use code in security situations that has been running some 100,000 hours and is known to be robust. Further, even with proven code there are constant pressures from within that make actual security testing more of a classroom exercise than a workable matter in deployed practice. For the most part, if there is money on the wire, we need to use electronic devices that have extensive tooling by EE's and cross-locks such that no one individual can defeat the controls. Further, the insurance must be paid up and lots of legal boilerplate and ultimately, designed so that an operator on one checkout lane at a grocery store can only do harm to the extent of that immediate cash drawer ( or a person using the operator as a shield )

We have to examine in context the traditionally cited master intruder, person was stealing driver's license photos. Okay, I want you to pull your dl out and look at the picture. Who would steal that when it might even be available online? Then, beyond that, the places where they put people who do that are not intended for comfort. Their sole burden is to deprive you of your liberty - nothing more. For 25-35 dollars a day, some commercial businesses do human warehousing.
Okay, let us consider the intruder. If that intruder had any smarts at all, first thing is to find someone else to take the fall. Next thing is hide the tracks and defeat the interlocks. See my interview at rfid dot inc with Carl Brown. He sells devices where Men In Black actually come out and crack skulls when people screw up.
It is not funny, code as though a Gorrilla is trying to take away your Pizza.
