SAFECode Whitepaper: Fundamental Practices for Secure Software Development 2nd Edition

  • Stacy Simpson
Conference paper


A review of the secure software development processes used by SAFECode members reveals that there are corresponding security practices for each activity in the software development lifecycle that can improve software security and are applicable across diverse environments. The examination of these vendor practices reinforces the assertion that software security must be addressed throughout the software development lifecycle to be effective and not treated as a one-time event or single box on a checklist. Moreover, these security methods are currently in practice among SAFECode members, a testament to their ability to be integrated and adapted into real-world development environments.
