Contribute To The CERT Guidelines For Perl

The CERT program at Carnegie Mellon University has created secure coding guidelines for several programming languages, including Perl. It is a community effort, and guidelines are written and discussed on a wiki-style platform.

Some of the guidelines are associated with Perl::Critic, so I've given my 2 cents on those.
David Svoboda is the lead author for the Perl guidelines, and he has been very responsive to my feedback.

But I'm no authority on Perl security issues. I'm sure David would love to get some input from real experts in the field. So if you'd like to contribute to this important and highly visible resource, then hop over to CERT's Perl page and request an account.

I'll point to my earlier post on Perl::Critic and CERT. :)
