Czech title
Pokyny pro bezpečné kódování - Python

With the number of cyberattacks and their costs rising, the demand for secure coding also rises. Python is an indivisible part of this problem as the favourite programming language. Many programmers can code in Python, but they can not code securely. Python does not have any official secure coding guidelines, and its educational materials on this topic are insufficient. This thesis aims to inform about the most significant Python coding vulnerabilities and bring solutions to these vulnerabilities. It also aims to raise the public's awareness with the help of new secure coding guidelines and educational tool. The educational tool as a web application should be well arranged and usable for the public. The tool also includes real-life examples of exploits from vulnerabilities explained in the guidelines.
