Top Security Papers for New Security Software Engineers

Top Security Papers for New Security Software Engineers.

Recently on the SC-L
mailing list a discussion on some of the topic good security papers has
insued. As you know, on the right side of my blog I have some of my
personal favorites. Those are papers that at the time of reading,
actually “changed” my thinking in some way. What it doesn't truly
reflect is what are GOOD papers for OTHER security software engineers.

To rectify that, let me give you a list (in no particular order) of
my favorite “security papers” that have interesting components. Please
note this is FAR from an exhaustive list, but merely papers that I read
that I enjoyed at the time.

Funny thing is, most of these are over 20 years old! What
does that say for our industry, when many of the issues in infosec have
foundations we could have learned from so many years ago?

Anyways, if you have the time, consider reading some (or all) of these papers. Good stuff.
