This guidance was created to urge software manufacturers to proactively prevent the exploitation of vulnerabilities in web management interfaces by designing and developing their products using SbD principles:
Take Ownership of Customer Security Outcomes.
Embrace Radical Transparency and Accountability.
By implementing these two principles in their software design process, software manufactures can help their customers avoid exploitation of vulnerabilities in web management interfaces at scale. How Software Manufacturers Can Shield Web Management Interfaces From Malicious Cyber Activity is the first in a new Secure by Design Alert Series that focuses on how vendor decisions can reduce harm at a global scale.
To learn more about this series, and how vendor decisions can reduce harm at a global scale, refer to the Secure by Design Alert Series blog.
