      It’s not the language that is secure or insecure.

      It’s the security that’s built into the framework you use and it’s your design and coding that make it less secure or more secure. For that last part, see for example https://owasp.org/www-project-secure-coding-practices-quick-reference-guide/ .

      Also, if the site is secure against intruders, but you happen to use Google or Facebook logon, Google and Facebook get to know a lot about the visitors. That’s bad privacy.
      For privacy it’s also important what the webmaster does with the data that’s collected. If they decide to sell the customers e-mailadresses to whoever pays the most, there’s no privacy.

        I believe having a visitor but keeping the data secure are different things
        one is data is more secure but they have access like Facebook but other thing you make data easily accessible

      Hello,

      There is no single programming language that can be considered the “best” in terms of security. Security depends on many factors, including how the code is written, how it’s deployed, and how it’s maintained. That being said, some commonly recommended languages for security-critical applications include Rust, Swift, and Python due to their memory safety and other security features. Additionally, it’s important to keep in mind that even secure code can be vulnerable if it is not properly implemented and maintained.

      Which software language best suits web development and its security?

      by arusikumarioff ·

      In reply to As a developer what is best programming language that is more secure

      The most popular languages in the analysis by WhiteHat Security were ASP, ColdFusion,.NET, Java, Perl, PHP, and.NET (a distinction was made between classical ASP and newer .NET technologies). Following are the top three most used web programming languages:

      .NET (28.1%)
      Java (24.9%)
      ASP (15.9%)
      Each language’s percentage of vulnerabilities is consistent with the rankings above. Java and ASP both had 28% and 15% of the vulnerabilities found, while.NET was responsible for 31% of them.

      The adoption of languages varies greatly by industry as well; for example, PHP predominates in the gambling sector whereas ASP is heavily used in the banking sector. While the government appears to steer clear of ColdFusion and Perl when developing online applications, the banking industry extensively relies on both Java and.NET.

      Hello this is Gulshan Negi
      Well, the security of a software application depends on many factors, including the design and architecture of the application, the security practices of the development team, and the deployment and maintenance of the application. Some programming languages are often considered to be more secure than others due to features such as memory safety, type safety, and automatic bounds checking. Some examples of these types of languages include Rust, Swift, and Java.
      Thanks

      There is no one “best” programming language that is inherently more secure than others. Security is a complex issue that depends on many factors, including the design and implementation of the software, the infrastructure it runs on, and the security practices of the development team.

      Having said that, some programming languages, such as Python and JavaScript, have large and active communities that produce a lot of libraries and tools to help developers write secure code. On the other hand, languages like C and C++, which have been around for a long time and are widely used, can be more susceptible to security vulnerabilities if not used correctly.

      Ultimately, the key to writing secure code is to follow best practices and to thoroughly test the software for vulnerabilities. This can be done in any programming language.

      Security is a complex issue that involves not just the programming language but also the design, implementation, and deployment of the software. No single programming language can guarantee complete security, and it’s essential to adopt a multi-layered approach to security that includes proper use of cryptography, secure protocols, and other security measures.

      However, some programming languages are generally considered to be more secure than others, due to their design and the way they handle memory and other critical aspects of software development. Some of these programming languages are:

      Rust: Rust is a systems programming language that is designed with security in mind. It has features that prevent common security vulnerabilities such as buffer overflows and null pointer dereferences.

      Swift: Swift is a programming language developed by Apple for iOS and macOS development. It is considered more secure than other programming languages because it automatically handles memory management and provides built-in security features such as code signing and runtime protection.

      Python: Python is a popular and versatile programming language, and it has many built-in security features, including strong type checking and automatic memory management. However, its popularity has also made it a target for security threats, so it’s essential to be vigilant when using Python for security-critical applications.

      Java: Java is a widely used programming language that is known for its security features, such as automatic memory management and built-in security APIs. Java applications are run in a virtual machine, which provides an extra layer of security.

      Ultimately, the best programming language for security will depend on the specific requirements and constraints of the project. Regardless of the programming language, it’s essential to follow best practices and to use established tools and frameworks to help ensure the security of the software.
