STRIDE Threat modelling Which THREAT modelling framework/methodology should I go for? This is a very common question nowadays, since the “Shift-left revolution”, we have all been trying to introduce security as early into the SDLC as possible (if we aren’t? we should!). THREAT modelling is the foundational activity of shifting left, which basically means finding threats early into the SDLC. Finding threats early in the software development lifecycle helps you save costs in terms of time, finances and more importantly possible reputational damage. Now that you are sold on doing threat modelling in the design phase of SDLC, the question […]

Application Threat Modeling using DREAD and STRIDE

Introduction Application Threat Modeling using DREAD and STRIDE is an approach for analyzing the security of an application. It is a structured approach that enables you to identify, classify, rate, compare and prioritize the security risks associated with an application. Application Threat modeling should be considered separate from Risk Assessment, although similar but Application Threat Modeling is more of a calculated approach. Inducing Application Threat Modeling into SDLC process has its advantages for the security of the entire project. Most importantly when performing security assessments following the threat modeling approach gives the reviewer a comprehensive overview of the Application. This […]
