Threats to application security continue to evolve just as quickly as the systems that protect against cyber-threats. In many instances, traditional firewalls and other conventional controls can no longer get the job done. The latest line of defense is to build security features into software as it is being developed. Drawing from the author's extensive experience as a developer, Secure Software Development: Assessing and Managing Security Risks illustrates how software application security can be best, and most cost-effectively, achieved when developers monitor and regulate risks early on, integrating assessment and management into the development life cycle. This book identifies the two primary reasons for inadequate security safeguards: Development teams are not sufficiently trained to identify risks; and developers falsely believe that pre-existing perimeter security controls are adequate to protect newer software. Examining current trends, as well as problems that have plagued software security for more than a decade, this useful guide: Outlines and compares various techniques to assess, identify, and manage security risks and vulnerabilities, with step-by-step instruction on how to execute each approach Explains the fundamental terms related to the security process Elaborates on the pros and cons of each method, phase by phase, to help readers select the one that best suits their needs Despite decades of extraordinary growth in software development, many open-source, government, regulatory, and industry organizations have been slow to adopt new application safety controls, hesitant to take on the added expense. This book improves understanding of the security environment and the need for safety measures. It shows readers how to analyze relevant threats to their applications and then implement time- and money-saving techniques

A collection of best practices and effective implementation recommendations that are proven to work, Secure, Resilient, and Agile Software Development leaves the boring details of software security theory out of the discussion as much as possible to concentrate on practical applied software security for practical people. Written to aid your career as well as your organization, the book shows how to gain skills in secure and resilient software development and related tasks. The book explains how to integrate these development skills into your daily duties, thereby increasing your professional value to your company, your management, your community, and your industry. Secure, Resilient, and Agile Software Development was written for the following professionals: AppSec architects and program managers in information security organizations Enterprise architecture teams with application development focus Scrum teams DevOps teams Product owners and their managers Project managers Application security auditors With a detailed look at Agile and Scrum software development methodologies, this book explains how security controls need to change in light of an entirely new paradigm on how software is developed. It focuses on ways to educate everyone who has a hand in any software development project with appropriate and practical skills to Build Security In. After covering foundational and fundamental principles for secure application design, this book dives into concepts, techniques, and design goals to meet well-understood acceptance criteria on features an application must implement. It also explains how the design sprint is adapted for proper consideration of security as well as defensive programming techniques. The book concludes with a look at white box application analysis and sprint-based activities to improve the security and quality of software under development.

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

"What makes this book so important is that it reflects the experiences of two of the industry's most experienced hands at getting real-world engineers to understand just what they're being asked for when they're asked to write secure code. The book reflects Michael Howard's and David LeBlanc's experience in the trenches working with developers years after code was long since shipped, informing them of problems." --From the Foreword by Dan Kaminsky, Director of Penetration Testing, IOActive Eradicate the Most Notorious Insecure Designs and Coding Vulnerabilities Fully updated to cover the latest security issues, 24 Deadly Sins of Software Security reveals the most common design and coding errors and explains how to fix each one-or better yet, avoid them from the start. Michael Howard and David LeBlanc, who teach Microsoft employees and the world how to secure code, have partnered again with John Viega, who uncovered the original 19 deadly programming sins. They have completely revised the book to address the most recent vulnerabilities and have added five brand-new sins. This practical guide covers all platforms, languages, and types of applications. Eliminate these security flaws from your code: SQL injection Web server- and client-related vulnerabilities Use of magic URLs, predictable cookies, and hidden form fields Buffer overruns Format string problems Integer overflows C++ catastrophes Insecure exception handling Command injection Failure to handle errors Information leakage Race conditions Poor usability Not updating easily Executing code with too much privilege Failure to protect stored data Insecure mobile code Use of weak password-based systems Weak random numbers Using cryptography incorrectly Failing to protect network traffic Improper use of PKI Trusting network name resolution

This first-of-its-kind resource offers a broad and detailed understanding of software systems engineering from both security and safety perspectives. Addressing the overarching issues related to safeguarding public data and intellectual property, the book defines such terms as systems engineering, software engineering, security, and safety as precisely as possible, making clear the many distinctions, commonalities, and interdependencies among various disciplines. You explore the various approaches to risk and the generation and analysis of appropriate metrics. This unique book explains how processes relevant to the creation and operation of software systems should be determined and improved, how projects should be managed, and how products can be assured. You learn the importance of integrating safety and security into the development life cycle. Additionally, this practical volume helps identify what motivators and deterrents can be put in place in order to implement the methods that have been recommended.
