ASQF interest group Requirements Engineering: meeting in March 2017

The professional group for requirements engineering organizes its next presentation evening at Method Park on March 9th at 6 p.m. Christian Alexander Graf and Jens Palluch will demonstrate how to determine and record requirements for secure software.

From the abstract:
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Quality neither can be “tested into” software in retrospective nor can software be secured in retrospective. To achieve an appropriate state of security, tasks and abilities of your own systems and objectives and resources of a potential attack have to be recorded – including the definition of

  • what has to be secured,
  • which resources are available
  • and against who or what do security measures have to be successful.

Development of a secure system does not start with understanding and describing your own systems and your attackers. Security Requirements Engineering has to start as soon as possible during systems engineering and has to be iteratively continued during the entire lifecycle. This presentation will provide you with an overview of different methods in use such as SQUARE, context analysis and Misuse Cases.

This meeting of ASQF is for free. The professional group only asks participants to register via the ASQF website.
