Security Concerns

Two weeks ago in this space, I featured a question-and-answer session with security expert Dinis Cruz. His concern: That .NET development vendors and programmers alike are failing to employ sandboxing techniques to ensure that applications remain secure.

Redmond Developer News plans to cover this and other development security-related issues in an upcoming issue of RDN. But we wanted to hear from you first. What security issues concern you most when developing applications? Do you feel that tool vendors are providing the resources you need to create software that's fundamentally secure? And do you feel that sandboxing, as an approach to enabling security, has been widely overlooked by the industry?
