Agile continues to be the most adopted software development methodology among organizations worldwide, but it generally hasn't integrated well with traditional security management techniques. And most security professionals aren’t up to speed in their understanding and experience of agile development. To help bridge the divide between these two worlds, this practical guide introduces several security tools and techniques adapted specifically to integrate with agile development. Written by security experts and agile veterans, this book begins by introducing security principles to agile practitioners, and agile principles to security practitioners. The authors also reveal problems they encountered in their own experiences with agile security, and how they worked to solve them. You’ll learn how to: Add security practices to each stage of your existing development lifecycle Integrate security with planning, requirements, design, and at the code level Include security testing as part of your team’s effort to deliver working software in each release Implement regulatory compliance in an agile or DevOps environment Build an effective security program through a culture of empathy, openness, transparency, and collaboration

Today's high-speed and rapidly changing development environments demand equally high-speed security practices. Still, achieving security remains a human endeavor, a core part of designing, generating and verifying software. Dr. James Ransome and Brook S.E. Schoenfield have built upon their previous works to explain that security starts with people; ultimately, humans generate software security. People collectively act through a particular and distinct set of methodologies, processes, and technologies that the authors have brought together into a newly designed, holistic, generic software development lifecycle facilitating software security at Agile, DevOps speed. —Eric. S. Yuan, Founder and CEO, Zoom Video Communications, Inc. It is essential that we embrace a mantra that ensures security is baked in throughout any development process. Ransome and Schoenfield leverage their abundance of experience and knowledge to clearly define why and how we need to build this new model around an understanding that the human element is the ultimate key to success. —Jennifer Sunshine Steffens, CEO of IOActive Both practical and strategic, Building in Security at Agile Speed is an invaluable resource for change leaders committed to building secure software solutions in a world characterized by increasing threats and uncertainty. Ransome and Schoenfield brilliantly demonstrate why creating robust software is a result of not only technical, but deeply human elements of agile ways of working. —Jorgen Hesselberg, author of Unlocking Agility and Cofounder of Comparative Agility The proliferation of open source components and distributed software services makes the principles detailed in Building in Security at Agile Speed more relevant than ever. Incorporating the principles and detailed guidance in this book into your SDLC is a must for all software developers and IT organizations. —George K Tsantes, CEO of Cyberphos, former partner at Accenture and Principal at EY Detailing the people, processes, and technical aspects of software security, Building in Security at Agile Speed emphasizes that the people element remains critical because software is developed, managed, and exploited by humans. This book presents a step-by-step process for software security that is relevant to today’s technical, operational, business, and development environments with a focus on what humans can do to control and manage the process in the form of best practices and metrics.

This book sets out to equip agile software development teams and security stakeholders with the tools needed to harden a software product. This is done by fusing the processes of agile software development with the top twenty-five software security bugs widely known to developers and security experts. Building security in and making it an integral part of the software development life cycle is very much a challenge for any software and product development team. This book shows agile teams how the barriers to security can be broken down to build security in to existing or new software products. This book will take agile teams through the process of building security into a software product. Traditional agile team roles are given new, additional security roles and responsibilities; agile will support the flexibility needed for these additional roles. The worksheets and tables provided at the end of this book serve to support scrum masters and product owners as they transition to the new, added responsibility in their organization.

In this SECOND EDITION of THE AGILE SECURITY DEVELOPMENT LIFE CYCLE (A/SDLC) we expand and include new information to improve the concept of "Agile Cyber." We further discuss the need for a Security Traceability Requirements Matrix (SecRTM) and the need to know where all data elements are located throughout your IT environment to include Cloud storage and repository locations. The author continues his focus upon ongoing shortfalls and failures of "Secure System Development." The author seeks to use his over 25 years in the public and private sector program management and cybersecurity to create a solution. This book provides the first-ever integrated operational-security process to enhance the readers understanding of why systems are so poorly secured. Why we as a nation have missed the mark in cybersecurity? Why nation-states and hackers are successful daily? This book also describes the two major mainstream "agile" NIST frameworks that can be employed, and how to use them effectively under a Risk Management approach. We may be losing "battles, " but may be its time we truly commit to winning the cyber-war.

Your Hands-On, "In-the-Trenches" Guide to Successfully Leading AgileProjectsAgile methods promise to infuse development with unprecedented flexibility, speed, and valueand these promises are attracting IT organizations worldwide. However, agile methods often fail to clearly define the manager s role, and many managers have been reluctant to buy in. Now, expert project manager Sanjiv Augustine introduces agility "from the manager s point of view, offering a proven management framework that addresses everything from team building to project control. Augustine bridges the disconnect between the assumptions and techniques of traditional and agile management, demonstrating why agility is better aligned with today s project realities, and how to simplify your transition. Using a detailed case study, he shows how agile methods can scale to succeed in even the largest projects: Defining a high-value role for the manager in agile project environmentsRefocusing on "outcomes--not rigid plans, processes, or controlsStructuring and building adaptive, self-organizing "organic teams"Forming a guiding vision that aligns your team behind a common purposeEmpowering your team with the information it needs to succeedManaging the flow of customer value from one creative stage to the nextLeveraging your team members strengths as "whole persons"Implementing full-life-cycle agility: from planning and coding to maintenance and knowledge transfer Customizing agile methods to your unique environmentBecoming an "adaptive leader" who can inspire and energize agile teams Whether you re a technical or business manager, "Managing Agile Projectsgives you all the tools you need to implement agility in "your environmentand reap its full benefits.

Praise for Core Security Patterns Java provides the application developer with essential security mechanisms and support in avoiding critical security bugs common in other languages. A language, however, can only go so far. The developer must understand the security requirements of the application and how to use the features Java provides in order to meet those requirements. Core Security Patterns addresses both aspects of security and will be a guide to developers everywhere in creating more secure applications. --Whitfield Diffie, inventor of Public-Key Cryptography A comprehensive book on Security Patterns, which are critical for secure programming. --Li Gong, former Chief Java Security Architect, Sun Microsystems, and coauthor of Inside Java 2 Platform Security As developers of existing applications, or future innovators that will drive the next generation of highly distributed applications, the patterns and best practices outlined in this book will be an important asset to your development efforts. --Joe Uniejewski, Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President, RSA Security, Inc. This book makes an important case for taking a proactive approach to security rather than relying on the reactive security approach common in the software industry. --Judy Lin, Executive Vice President, VeriSign, Inc. Core Security Patterns provides a comprehensive patterns-driven approach and methodology for effectively incorporating security into your applications. I recommend that every application developer keep a copy of this indispensable security reference by their side. --Bill Hamilton, author of ADO.NET Cookbook, ADO.NET in a Nutshell, and NUnit Pocket Reference As a trusted advisor, this book will serve as a Java developers security handbook, providing applied patterns and design strategies for securing Java applications. --Shaheen Nasirudheen, CISSP,Senior Technology Officer, JPMorgan Chase Like Core J2EE Patterns, this book delivers a proactive and patterns-driven approach for designing end-to-end security in your applications. Leveraging the authors strong security experience, they created a must-have book for any designer/developer looking to create secure applications. --John Crupi, Distinguished Engineer, Sun Microsystems, coauthor of Core J2EE Patterns Core Security Patterns is the hands-on practitioners guide to building robust end-to-end security into J2EE(tm) enterprise applications, Web services, identity management, service provisioning, and personal identification solutions. Written by three leading Java security architects, the patterns-driven approach fully reflects todays best practices for security in large-scale, industrial-strength applications. The authors explain the fundamentals of Java application security from the ground up, then introduce a powerful, structured security methodology; a vendor-independent security framework; a detailed assessment checklist; and twenty-three proven security architectural patterns. They walk through several realistic scenarios, covering architecture and implementation and presenting detailed sample code. They demonstrate how to apply cryptographic techniques; obfuscate code; establish secure communication; secure J2ME(tm) applications; authenticate and authorize users; and fortify Web services, enabling single sign-on, effective identity management, and personal identification using Smart Cards and Biometrics. Core Security Patterns covers all of the following, and more: What works and what doesnt: J2EE application-security best practices, and common pitfalls to avoid Implementing key Java platform security features in real-world applications Establishing Web Services security using XML Signature, XML Encryption, WS-Security, XKMS, and WS-I Basic security profile Designing identity management and service provisioning systems using SAML, Liberty, XACML, and SPML Designing secure personal identification solutions using Smart Cards and Biometrics Security design methodology, patterns, best practices, reality checks, defensive strategies, and evaluation checklists End-to-end security architecture case study: architecting, designing, and implementing an end-to-end security solution for large-scale applications
