As a registered member of SearchAppSecurity.com, you're entitled to a complimentary copy of Chapter 5 of Software Security: Building Security In written by Gary McGraw and published by Addison Wesley Professional. "Architectural Risk Analysis" helps you identify risk, thereby creating a good general-purpose measure of software security, especially if you track risk over time.
Beginning where the best-selling book Building Secure Software left off, Software Security teaches you how to put software security into practice. The software security best practices, or touch points, described in this book have their basis in good software engineering and involve explicitly pondering security throughout the software development lifecycle. This means knowing and understanding common risks (including implementation bugs and architectural flaws), designing for security, and subjecting all software artifacts to thorough, objective risk analyses and testing.
Software Security is about putting the touch points to work for you. Because you can apply these touch points to the software artifacts you already produce as you develop software, you can adopt this book's methods without radically changing the way you work. Inside you'll find detailed explanations of the following:
- Risk management frameworks and processes
- Code review using static analysis tools
- Architectural risk analysis
- Penetration testing
- Security testing
- Abuse case development
In addition to the touch points, Software Security covers knowledge management, training and awareness, and enterprise-level software security programs.
