Abstract

Lack of a suitable set of controls during the development life cycle of software will lead to mistakes in the requirements, design, or code of software and, therefore, result in significant security vulnerabilities. This paper proposes a software engineering course from the security perspective, which can be taught at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. It will prepare students to successfully cope with the technical challenges as well as the non technical issues associated with the software development process, while integrating security into each phase of the process. The course materials are derived from the Guide to the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK) published by the IEEE Computer Society with the support of a consortium of industrial sponsors.
