Submission + - Secure Software Institute going to test coders.

UnderAttack writes: "The SANS Secure Software Institute went public today with a couple of free sample tests. The goal of the institute will be to offer assessment tests for developers. Right now, most certifications like ISO9001 and such focus on process vs. skill. The SANS SSI tests on the other hand are highly technical, focus on secure coding skills, and will be offered for various languages.

Given all the focus on security these days, tests like this may soon be required for y'all. SANS, the company behind SANS-SSI, offers vendor neutral testing. I am sure we will soon see more software developer training from them."
