Abstract:

The Structured Application Protection Process (SAPP) system concept classifies software applications into domains. Each domain class represents different operational aspects of software - such as real-time response, data management, compute intensive, and user interactive - to correlates a likelihood of vulnerabilities with an application software type. A threat model is used to correlate attack vectors with vulnerabilities for prioritizing both penetration testing and operational monitoring. The threat model utilizes a standard classification of attack patterns to identify the attack vectors most likely to be used against known vulnerabilities. The correlation of threats with vulnerabilities produces a risk assessment which can be used in the development of a remediation strategy. The proposed project reduces technical risk by leveraging prior research and development and by using standard descriptions of vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and attack patterns. The innovation of the proposed concept is to make as efficient as possible the analysis and implementation of protecting application software.
