  1. 1. Improving Software Security by Preventing Known Vulnerabilities

    Author : David Byers; Nahid Shahmehri; David Basin; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Software security; software process improvement;

    Abstract : From originally being of little concern, security has become a crucial quality factor in modern software. The risk associated with software insecurity has increased dramatically with increased reliance on software and a growing number of threat agents. Nevertheless, developers still struggle with security. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lightweight Enforcement of Fine-Grained Security Policies for Untrusted Software

    Author : Phu Phung; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; security policy enforcement; JavaScript security; web-application security; vehicle software security; untrusted software;

    Abstract : This thesis presents an innovative approach to implementing a security enforcement mechanism in the contexts of untrusted software systems, where a piece of code in a base system may come from an untrusted third party. The key point of the approach is that it is lightweight in the sense that it does not need an additional policy language or extra tool. READ MORE

  3. 3. Predictability By Construction : Working the Architecture/Program Seam

    Author : Kurt C. Wallnau; Ivica Crnkovic; Magnus Larsson; Hans Hansson; Clemens Szyperski; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; software engineering; software architecture; software components; quality attributes; Software engineering; Programvaruteknik; Computer Science; datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Contemporary software engineering practice overemphasizes the distinction of software design from software implementation, and designer (“software architect”) from implementor (“computer programmer”). In this contemporary meme, software architects are concerned with large-grained system structures, quality attributes that arise from these structures (security, availability, performance, etc. READ MORE

  4. 4. Developing Secure Software : in an Agile Process

    Author : Dejan Baca; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []

    Abstract : Background: Software developers are facing increased pressure to lower development time, release new software versions more frequent to customers and to adapt to a faster market. This new environment forces developers and companies to move from a plan based waterfall development process to a flexible agile process. READ MORE

  5. 5. On Cyber-Security for In-Vehicle Software

    Author : Aljoscha Lautenbach; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vehicular Security; Memory Protection; Automotive Security; Memory Exploitation; In-Vehicle Network; Risk Assessment; CAN authentication; Secure Software Development;

    Abstract : We live in a highly connected world, which brings many opportunities, but which also makes us vulnerable to attacks. Security in regular IT systems, such as desktop and server systems, has decades of active research behind it, whereas security in the automotive domain is still a relatively new topic. READ MORE
