I would like to share a story. It is a story about how to write security programs securely, something that the story suggests "Real Programmers" cannot do. It is a story that illuminates many of the problems that lead to modern software quality.
It is a long story, longer than one can tell in a single blog entry. One has a choice of breaking it up into multiple entries or simply providing a link from this blog to the story, the choice I have taken. https://tinyurl.com/Real-Programmers
