Application vulnerabilities are a recognized, pervasive, and significant security concern. As discussed in this SPIE, involvement in secure software development by security professionals pales relative to their level of concern over application vulnerabilities. Additionally, form and function priorities for application developers keep secure software development at the low end of their priority ladders. These points notwithstanding, there is reason to be optimistic that secure software development will gain increasing favor among application development and security teams.
Executives in charge of their organization´s data and infrastructure security have concerns. Top of the list is application vulnerabilities; that is, the looseness in application software code and logic that provide attackers the means and opportunity to pursue their nefarious activities (e.g., exfiltrate valuable data,
steal intellectual property, disrupt operations, and damage the victim´s public reputation).
Confirming this concern is a 2012 global survey of information security professionals, commissioned by (ISC)2Â®. A high percentage of security executives rated application vulnerabilities as either a top or high concern. This number one ranking is not exclusive to security executives. Near equal levels of concern were expressed by all categories of security professionals (e.g., security architects, auditors, managers, and security analysts) regardless of industry vertical and company size. In other words, application vulnerabilities are a recognized, pervasive, and significant security concern.
Reducing the number and severity of application vulnerabilities during software development would seem to be the most logical remedy to this situation. Yet, as discussed in this SPIE, involvement in secure software development by security professionals pales relative to their level of concern over application vulnerabilities. Additionally, form and function priorities for application developers keep secure software development at the low end of their priority ladders.
Limited Involvement in Secure Software Development
Security professionals are not extensively involved in secure software development. This is not to say that there are no security professionals deeply engaged; rather, the degree of involvement pales when compared to the degree of concern expressed by the community of security professionals.
