Microsoft maded available a free collection of resources to customers looking for a starting point when it comes down to integrating the company's Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) practices into their own software development process.
"The templates for Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) practices are a collection of documents that are designed to be used as a starting point for creating your own SDL process documents. They are not an exhaustive list of activities or criteria, and should not be treated as such. These templates are a means to help you accelerate implementation of the SDL practices and to gather valuable security information about your project," stated Microsoft.
By downloading the resources offered, customers can easily gain insight into Defining Security Requirements; Creating a Security Bug Bar; Performing a Security Risk Assessment; Conducting a basic threat model; Managing SDL Exception Requests; and Performing a Final Security Review.
Devs can either download the documents one by one or grab all of them at once through the .ZIP archive provided by the software giant.
