Secure SDLC Coverage
When it comes to secure coding, this reactive secure development approach is setting software teams up for failure. To achieve true improvement, security should be integrated over the entire SDLC. The four core areas of secure software development include:
Security Engineering. These activities include security requirements elicitation, definition, and enforcement; creating a secure architecture based on well understood and vetted principles; use of static analysis tools and manual inspection code review techniques; and penetration testing.
Software Security Assurance. These activities include verification & validation, expert review, artifact review, and evaluations.
Organizational & Project Management. These activities include executive sponsorship, administrative controls, and organizational policies. Activities also include project planning, resource allocation, and security metrics to ensure that security activities are properly planned, managed, and tracked.
Risk Identification & Management. Managing security risks is one of the most important components in a secure SDLC and drives all subsequent activities.
It's more than best practices
Too often, identifying and remediating vulnerabilities is seen as a task performed during the testing phase, at the tail end of the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
Praetorian works with your development team to integrate secure development activities over the entire software development process. The end goal of secure SDLC integration, is to drive and empower developers to perform secure development activities as part of their standard development process.
