    How do you add security testing into the software development process?

    by MichaelPerez208 ·

    Tags: 

    With all my experience as a test automation engineer, I have understood that adding security testing in the software process is very important to make sure that the software is secure and can protect from all the bad consequences. Currently, my company is planning to incorporate security testing into the software development process with a automated tool, but I think we need to know more about the practices to do that. So if anyone could help in that, it would be great.

      Hey Michael,

      I think the below-mentioned steps might help you to incorporate security testing into the software development process:

      1. Identify potential security risks: The first step is to identify potential security risks that the software may face. This can be done through threat modeling, which includes identifying possible threats and vulnerabilities that could be exploited.

      2. Develop security requirements: Based on the identified risks, develop security requirements that the software must meet to ensure that it is secure. These requirements should be included in the software’s functional and non-functional requirements.

      3. Perform security testing: Security testing should be performed throughout the software development process to ensure that the security requirements are met. This can include vulnerability assessments, penetration testing, and code reviews.

      4. Incorporate security into the development process: Security should be incorporated into every phase of the software development process, from requirements gathering to deployment. Developers should be trained on secure coding practices and should be responsible for writing secure code.

      5. Use automated tools: Automated tools can be used to identify potential security vulnerabilities in the software. These tools can be integrated into the development process to ensure that security testing is performed consistently and efficiently.

      By following these steps, security can be incorporated into the software development process to ensure that the software is secure and can protect against potential threats. You can also use automated tools that will definitely make your incorporation process way easier.

      Please let me know if this helps.
