    Integration of security processes with the SDLC:

     

    It is constantly agreed, that cost will be more, if we put off security testing after software implementation stage or after deployment. In this way, it is important to include security testing in SDLC life cycle in the prior/earlier stages.

     

     


    Let's investigate the corresponding Security processes/procedures to be adopted for each stage in SDLC:

     

     

    SDLC Phases  Security Processes                                                    
    Requirements

     

    Security examination for prerequisites/requirements and check misuse/abuse cases

     

    Design

     

    Security risk examination for designing. Development of test arrangement including security tests

     

    Coding and Unit Testing

     

    Static and Dynamic Testing and Security white box testing

     

    Integration Testing

     

    Black Box Testing

     

    System Testing

     

    Black Box Testing and Vulnerability scanning

     

    Implementation

     

    Penetration Testing, Vulnerability Scanning

     

    Support

     

    Impact analysis of Patches

     

     

     

    Test plan ought to include:-

     

    • Security related test cases or situations
    • Test Data identified with security testing
    • Test Tools required for security testing
    • Investigation on different tests outputs from various security tools
