Existing software applications become increasingly distributed as their continuity and lifetimes are lengthened; consequently, the users' dependence on these applications is increased. The security of these applications has become a primary concern in their design, construction and evolution. Thus, these applications give rise to major concerns on the capability of the current development approach to develop secure systems. Component-Based Software Development (CBSD) is a software engineering approach. CBSD has been successfully applied in many domains.
