OS of the Future: Built for Security

Security

Software vendors have been making their products more secure and have been providing tools and best-practice guidelines for application developers to improve security.

As far as security goes, the operating system of the future is, in many ways, here today. Led, somewhat ironically, by Microsoft Windows, operating system vendors and some other software vendors have been making their products more secure by default. They also have been providing tools and best-practice guidelines for application developers to improve security.

If everyone adopted the most current versions of software and followed state-of-the-art practices in software development, the future would be here today. Alas, things are never that easy.

The Internet caused the escalating software security problem, and the protection of Web browsers and other Internet-facing software has been the greatest imperative of security developers. The techniques designed to protect these programs will find their way into other applications and the core of the operating system itself.
