Bridging The Gap Between Requirement And Security Through Secure Requirement Specification Checklist

Requirement phase of the software development is the most appropriate and early stage for incorporating security. Unfortunately, no efficient methodology or tool exists to address security at requirement phase. Almost negligible work has been reported to assess the impact of security at requirement phase. Traditionally, security is often an afterthought but it is necessary that security should begin at the requirement level which covers both functional security as well as its emergent characteristics. Hence, it is important to identify security requirements of the system. In this paper, we propose a checklist for security requirement and assess the security with the help of mapping requirement parameters and security attributes. The total weight of security requirement is calculated with the DSR value and placed in security requirement traceability matrix.
