Information technology -- Programming languages, their environments and system software interfaces -- C secure coding rules

Abstract

ISO/IEC TS 17961:2013 specifies

  • rules for secure coding in the C programming language, and
  • code examples.

ISO/IEC TS 17961:2013 does not specify

  • the mechanism by which these rules are enforced, or
  • any particular coding style to be enforced.

Each rule in this Technical Specification is accompanied by code examples. Two distinct kinds of examples are provided:

  • noncompliant examples demonstrating language constructs that have weaknesses with potentially exploitable security implications; such examples are expected to elicit a diagnostic from a conforming analyzer for the affected language construct; and
  • compliant examples are expected not to elicit a diagnostic.
