CERT® C and CERT® C++
The CERT® Secure Coding Standards for C and C++ are standards that provide rules and recommendations that target insecure coding practices and undefined behaviors that can lead to exploitable vulnerabilities.
Created by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) for Embedded Developers
The Software Engineering Institute is a research and development center primarily funded by the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security.
The CERT Division at SEI is operated by Carnegie Mellon University and responsible for publishing these standards.
The CERT® C and C++ coding standards are the result of studying over 20 years of documented software vulnerability cases.
