SECURED DEVELOPMENT LIFECYCLE

Is your software development process creating secure code? One of the most difficult difficulties that developers confront on a daily basis is ensuring the security of their applications. It is not sufficient to test the program solely at the appropriate phases, which may result in small flaws being overlooked. Attackers are constantly ready to take advantage of even the smallest weakness.


What is secure development lifecycle and why is it important for you?
SDL (Secure Development Lifecycle) refers to the process of incorporating security artifacts into the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC). SDLC, on the other hand, is a thorough strategy that specifies the procedure that businesses employ to construct an application from conception through decommissioning. With this in mind, the idea of secure SDLC was born. Secure SDLC incorporates penetration testing, code review, and architectural analysis into all stages of the development process.


The major advantages of implementing a safe SDLC are as follows:

 

  • Makes security an ongoing concern: It includes all stakeholders in security concerns

  • Helps in the detection of faults early in the development process:  lowering commercial risks for the firm.

  • Saves money by discovering and fixing problems early in the lifecycle.

Most businesses will simply add security-related tasks to their existing development process to create a secure SDLC. During the design process, they can, for example, conduct an architecture risk analysis.

Most SDLCs include seven phases, however they may differ depending on the technique utilized, such as Agile or Waterfall:

  • Planning and requirement

  • Architecture and design

  • Test planning

  • Coding

  • Testing the code and results

  • Release and maintenance

Understanding the six processes of the SDLC and their security implications is crucial as the need for more efficient and sustainable development models with safe architectures grows.


An SDLC is a methodical approach to ensure that you, your business, and the stakeholders involved design, build, and deliver a final product in a timely and programmatically efficient manner. Creating the correct SDLC, on the other hand, necessitates hiring the best developers you can find. As a result, you must select competent and dependable developers who can ensure the quality and integrity of your projects.
