Why do some developers and development teams write more secure code than others? This talk will describe several human factors—developer, team and environmental characteristics—that influence whether developers will inadvertently introduce security weaknesses into their code. We will present the results of research on how factors such as developer experience, disrupted attention, team size, team co-location, communication, work hours, and code rewrites affect software security. The research results are drawn from DoD-funded R&D and academic research conducted on the software engineering practices used to develop both open-source and proprietary software.
