Abstract

In this chapter, we present the background related to security at the modeling level. We start by investigating security specification approaches for UML design: (1) using UML artifacts, (2) extending UML meta-language, and (3) creating a new meta-language. Afterwards, we evaluate the usability of these approaches for security specification according to a set of defined criteria. Finally, we overview the main design mechanisms that are adopted for security hardening at the modeling level. These are security design patterns, mechanism-directed meta-languages, and aspect-oriented modeling.
