Abstract

This article examines the integration of secure coding practices into the overall Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Also detailed is a proposed methodology for integrating software assurance into the Department of Defense Information Assurance Certification & Accreditation Process (DIACAP). This method for integrating software assurance helps in properly securing the application layer as that is where more than half of the vulnerabilities lie in a system.
