The 7 Qualities of Highly Secure Software provides a framework for designing, developing, and deploying hacker-resilient software. It uses engaging anecdotes and analogies—ranging from Aesop’s fables, athletics, architecture, biology, nursery rhymes, and video games—to illustrate the qualities that are essential for the development of highly secure software. Each chapter details one of the seven qualities that can make your software highly secure and less susceptible to hacker threats. Leveraging real-world experiences and examples, the book: Explains complex security concepts in language that is easy to understand for professionals involved in management, software development, and operations Specifies the qualities and skills that are essential for building secure software Highlights the parallels between the habits of effective people and qualities in terms of software security Praise for the Book: This will be required reading for my executives, security team, software architects and lead developers. —David W. Stender, CISSP, CSSLP, CAP, CISO of the US Internal Revenue Service Developing highly secure software should be at the forefront of organizational strategy and this book provides a framework to do so. —Troy Leach, CTO, PCI Security Standards Council This book will teach you the core, critical skills needed to raise the security bar on the attackers and swing the game in your favor. —Michael Howard, Principal Cyber Security Program Manager, Microsoft As a penetration tester, my job will be a lot harder as people read this book! —Kevin Johnson, Security Consultant, Secure Ideas

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. FUZZING Master One of Today’s Most Powerful Techniques for Revealing Security Flaws! Fuzzing has evolved into one of today’s most effective approaches to test software security. To “fuzz,” you attach a program’s inputs to a source of random data, and then systematically identify the failures that arise. Hackers have relied on fuzzing for years: Now, it’s your turn. In this book, renowned fuzzing experts show you how to use fuzzing to reveal weaknesses in your software before someone else does. Fuzzing is the first and only book to cover fuzzing from start to finish, bringing disciplined best practices to a technique that has traditionally been implemented informally. The authors begin by reviewing how fuzzing works and outlining its crucial advantages over other security testing methods. Next, they introduce state-of-the-art fuzzing techniques for finding vulnerabilities in network protocols, file formats, and web applications; demonstrate the use of automated fuzzing tools; and present several insightful case histories showing fuzzing at work. Coverage includes: • Why fuzzing simplifies test design and catches flaws other methods miss • The fuzzing process: from identifying inputs to assessing “exploitability” • Understanding the requirements for effective fuzzing • Comparing mutation-based and generation-based fuzzers • Using and automating environment variable and argument fuzzing • Mastering in-memory fuzzing techniques • Constructing custom fuzzing frameworks and tools • Implementing intelligent fault detection Attackers are already using fuzzing. You should, too. Whether you’re a developer, security engineer, tester, or QA specialist, this book teaches you how to build secure software.

Proven techniques for software engineering success This in-depth volume examines software engineering topics that are not covered elsewhere: the question of why software engineering has developed more than 2,500 programming languages; problems with traditional definitions of software quality; and problems with common metrics, "lines of code," and "cost per defect" that violate standard economic assumptions. The book notes that a majority of "new" projects are actually replacements for legacy applications, illustrating that data mining for lost requirements should be a standard practice. Difficult social engineering issues are also covered, such as how to minimize harm from layoffs and downsizing. Software Engineering Best Practices explains how to effectively plan, size, schedule, and manage software projects of all types, using solid engineering procedures. It details proven methods, from initial requirements through 20 years of maintenance. Portions of the book have been extensively reviewed by key engineers from top companies, including IBM, Microsoft, Unisys, and Sony. Manage Agile, hierarchical, matrix, and virtual software development teams Optimize software quality using JAD, OFD, TSP, static analysis, inspections, and other methods with proven success records Use high-speed functional metrics to assess productivity and quality levels Plan optimal organization, from small teams through more than 1,000 personnel
