Course Description

In this 6-video course, you will discover the basic issues involved in how to perform design security reviews, design secure assembly architecture for component-based systems, and use architecture and design tools that enhance security. First, learn to pay attention to the type of operational environment the software will be running under: is the software intended for public use via the Web, or is it only available within a stable, controlled network? Who will be the end users? Will you need to collaborate and coordinate testing, timing, and integration? Learn security patterns, and consider what security-enhancing architecture is available. Next, learn to distinguish between software appropriate for centralized and decentralized system; identify budgetary constraints, and consider available resources. Will new technologies need to be incorporated into the design at a later date? Your emphasis should be on the future, learning to build a flexible, modular system that can scale up and grow may be imperative. The course prepares learners for the (ISC)2 CSSLP: Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional certification exam.
