    Best language for secure website

    If you were to enter social security or drivers license number on a website, which programming language would be the most secure?

    PHP? ASP? CGI?

    I am interested in creating a state or government website to interact with the DMV and need to collect information, but it needs to be highly secure.
    What can handle that kind of information the best?

    Thanks

    I am actually thinking about .NET or Rails after reading about them.

    All of those languages are equally secure.

    It is what you do with them that will make your site more or less secure.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    from my experience working w/ state and federal agencies, .NET is going to be the easiest to integrate (vb.Net to be more precise)... But that is not to say they do not use the other languages.

    I code C hash-tag .Net
    Reference: W3C W3CWiki .Net Lib
    Validate: html CSS
    Debug: Chrome FireFox IE
