Computer Security at the Naval Surface Warfare Center

You may have heard of the Naval Surface Warfare Center. Needless to say, this military Web site is dedicated to communicating information about research and implementation of Naval warfare. Since the security of the military is of vital importance, you might find the following quote just a little disturbing:

Writing Secure CGI Applications - Terribly little is included in DoD guidance on how to do this other than that you should do it. This link is a good starting point on the topic written by Curtis Poe.

It's disturbing in two ways. First, there's the suggestion that the DoD does not provide much information to their programmers about how to write secure applications. Second, they did not actually provide the link to my CGI security information (they used to. I don't know why it's gone).
