Modelling Misuse Cases as a Means of Capturing Security Requirements

Use cases as part of requirements engineering are often seen as an essential part of systems development in many methodologies. Given that modern, security-oriented software development methods such as SDL, SQUARE and CLASP place security at the forefront of product initiation, design and implementation, the focus of requirements elicitation must now move to capturing security requirements so as not to replicate past errors. Misuse cases can be an effective tool to model security requirements. This paper uses a case study to investigate the generation of successful misuse cases by employing the STRIDE framework as used in the SDL.
