"Fail safely" gets redirected to a page with the heading "Fail Securely" (but still named "Fail_safely"). It seems someone thought "Fail Securely" is a better phrase for the principle than "Fail safely", but the change needs to be propagated to this page (and possibly on other pages).
I'd fix it myself but there is no page named "Fail_securely" and I don't want to make a mess of things for others -- I'm just visiting this site for the first time and don't have a feel yet for how it's being setup and maintained - I don't want to ruffle any feathers, but am trying to help...
Thanks Chris - I updated the main principle page to list "Fail Securely" instead of "Fail Safely." There is a page called http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Fail_securely. MediaWiki leaves behind any pages that are renamed with a redirect to the new page, so that any old links get to the right place. Jeff Williams 16:09, 9 June 2008 (EDT)
Application Security Principles
Why is Principles immediately limited to Application Security Principles? Aren't other kinds of principle relevant? --RichardVeryard 13:51, 12 August 2008 (EDT)
This page refers to "proven" principles. What counts as a proof - a self-appointed guru wrote it somewhere, a statistician has done a detailed meta-analysis of the literature, or what? --RichardVeryard 13:55, 12 August 2008 (EDT)
