Software security is about protecting information and ensuring that systems continue to function correctly even when under malicious attack. The traditional approach of securing a system has been to create defensive walls such as intrusion detection systems and firewalls around it, but there are always cracks in these walls, and thus such measures are no longer sufficient by themselves. We need to be able to build better, more robust and more “inherently secure” systems, and we should strive to achieve these qualities in all software systems, not just in the ones that “obviously” need special protection. This workshop will focus on techniques, experiences and lessons learned for engineering secure and dependable software.
