Apple’s guide represents the information that the company feels you should be aware of if you’re developing for OS X or iOS, “from scripts for your own use to commercial software applications”.

Just to give you the flavour, the contents include:

  • Types of security vulnerabilities
  • Avoiding buffer overflows and underflows
  • Validating Input and Interprocess Communication
  • Race Conditions and Secure File Operations
  • Elevating Privileges Safely
  • Designing Secure User Interfaces
  • Designing Secure Helpers and Daemons
  • Avoiding Injection Attacks and XSS
  • Security Development Checklists
  • Third-Party Software Security Guidelines
