"... an engaging book that will empower readers in both large and small software development and engineering organizations to build security into their products. ... Readers are armed with firm solutions for the fight against cyber threats." —Dr. Dena Haritos Tsamitis. Carnegie Mellon University "... a must read for security specialists, software developers and software engineers. ... should be part of every security professional’s library." —Dr. Larry Ponemon, Ponemon Institute "... the definitive how-to guide for software security professionals. Dr. Ransome, Anmol Misra, and Brook Schoenfield deftly outline the procedures and policies needed to integrate real security into the software development process. ...A must-have for anyone on the front lines of the Cyber War ..." —Cedric Leighton, Colonel, USAF (Ret.), Cedric Leighton Associates "Dr. Ransome, Anmol Misra, and Brook Schoenfield give you a magic formula in this book - the methodology and process to build security into the entire software development life cycle so that the software is secured at the source! " —Eric S. Yuan, Zoom Video Communications There is much publicity regarding network security, but the real cyber Achilles’ heel is insecure software. Millions of software vulnerabilities create a cyber house of cards, in which we conduct our digital lives. In response, security people build ever more elaborate cyber fortresses to protect this vulnerable software. Despite their efforts, cyber fortifications consistently fail to protect our digital treasures. Why? The security industry has failed to engage fully with the creative, innovative people who write software. Core Software Security expounds developer-centric software security, a holistic process to engage creativity for security. As long as software is developed by humans, it requires the human element to fix it. Developer-centric security is not only feasible but also cost effective and operationally relevant. The methodology builds security into software development, which lies at the heart of our cyber infrastructure. Whatever development method is employed, software must be secured at the source. Book Highlights: Supplies a practitioner's view of the SDL Considers Agile as a security enabler Covers the privacy elements in an SDL Outlines a holistic business-savvy SDL framework that includes people, process, and technology Highlights the key success factors, deliverables, and metrics for each phase of the SDL Examines cost efficiencies, optimized performance, and organizational structure of a developer-centric software security program and PSIRT Includes a chapter by noted security architect Brook Schoenfield who shares his insights and experiences in applying the book’s SDL framework View the authors' website at http://www.androidinsecurity.com/

Software Security Engineering draws extensively on the systematic approach developed for the Build Security In (BSI) Web site. Sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security Software Assurance Program, the BSI site offers a host of tools, guidelines, rules, principles, and other resources to help project managers address security issues in every phase of the software development life cycle (SDLC). The book’s expert authors, themselves frequent contributors to the BSI site, represent two well-known resources in the security world: the CERT Program at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and Cigital, Inc., a consulting firm specializing in software security. This book will help you understand why Software security is about more than just eliminating vulnerabilities and conducting penetration tests Network security mechanisms and IT infrastructure security services do not sufficiently protect application software from security risks Software security initiatives should follow a risk-management approach to identify priorities and to define what is “good enough”–understanding that software security risks will change throughout the SDLC Project managers and software engineers need to learn to think like an attacker in order to address the range of functions that software should not do, and how software can better resist, tolerate, and recover when under attack

In this thesis, we report our research on systematic security hardening. We see how the software development industry is currently relying on highly-qualified security experts in order to manually improve existing software, which is a costly and error-prone approach. In response to this situation, we propose an approach that enables systematic security hardening by non-experts. We first study the existing methods used to remedy software vulnerabilities and use this information to determine a classification and definition for security hardening. We then see how the state of the art in secure coding, patterns and aspect-oriented programming (AOP) can be leveraged to enable systematic software security improvements, independently from the users' security expertise. We also present improvements on AOP that are necessary in order for this approach to be realizable. The first improvement, GAFlow and GDFlow, two new pointcut constructors, allow the injection of code that precedes or follows any of the points in the input set, facilitating the development of reusable patterns. The second, ExportParameter and ImportParameter, allow us to safely pass parameters between different parts of the program. Afterwards, we leverage our previous findings in the definition of SHL, the Security Hardening Language. SHL is designed in order to permit language-independent expression of security hardening plans and security hardening patterns in an aspect-oriented manner which enables refinement of patterns into concrete solutions. We then demonstrate the viability of this approach by applying it to add a security feature to the APT package acquisition and management system.

"Information security covers the protection of information against unauthorized disclosure, transfer, modification, and destruction, whether accidentally or intentionally. Quality of life in general and of individual citizens, and the effectiveness of the economy critically depends on our ability to build software in a transparent and efficient way. Furthermore, we must be able to enhance the software development process systematically in order to ensure software's safety and security. This, in turn, requires very high software reliability, i.e., an extremely high confidence in the ability of the software to perform flawlessly. Foundations of software technology provide models that enable us to capture application domains and their requirements, but also to understand the structure and working of software systems and software architectures. Based on these foundations tools allow to prove and ensure the correctness of software's functioning. New developments must pay due diligence to the importance of security-related aspects, and align current methods and techniques to information security, integrity, and system reliability. The articles in this book describe the state-of-the-art ideas on how to meet these challenges in software engineering."
