The Open Source Security Foundation (OpenSSF) has developed a trio of free courses on how to develop secure software. These courses are part of the Secure Software Development Fundamentals Professional Certificate program.  There’s a fee if you want to try to earn a certificate (to prove that you learned the material). However, if you just want to learn the material without earning a certificate, that’s free; simply audit the course. You can also start for free and upgrade later if you pay within the upgrade deadline. All three courses are available on the edX platform.

The courses included in the program are:

  1. Secure Software Development: Requirements, Design, and Reuse (LFD104x)
  2. Secure Software Development: Implementation (LFD105x)
  3. Secure Software Development: Verification and More Specialized Topics (LFD106x)
