Discover the level of security involved in the design phase in the SDLC.
- As we begin talking about culture changes…around secure coding,…I think it is only fitting to talk first…about the point where most developers…begin their engagement,…and that is the design.…Design is a great place to start looking at ways…to make your application more secure for various reasons,…but I want to focus on some strategies…for how to take security into account during design.…I like to start all of my design activities…by looking at the system design.…
Whether it's a complete system in waterfall…or a simple feature in Scrum,…the system itself is key.…By looking at what you are building,…you can start looking at ways to destroy it,…and that is in my opinion…one of the greatest assets for a secure developer.…I feel very strongly that developers struggle with security…because they are trying to build,…not tear down.…Good security people learn how to tear down systems.…
They learn how to exploit features to attack the system.…This is what you should aim for in design.…Look at your system…or even your feature with a critical eye.…
