With the increasing inclination of people to use software systems for most of the purposes, comes a major challenge for software engineers - the engineering of secure software systems. The concept of \"Computer Security\" is being heavily researched and this perfectly makes sense in a world where e-commerce and e-governance are becoming the norms of the day. Along with their potential for making life easier and smarter for people, these systems also carry with them the danger of insecurity. Because any software system is an outcome of some software engineering process it makes sense to incorporate security considerations during the software engineering processes.
