Secure Software Testing

In this chapter, what to test, who is to test, and how to test for software security issues will be covered. ˜e different types of functional and security testing that must be performed will be highlighted, and criteria that can be used to determine the type of security tests to be performed will be discussed. Security testing is necessary and must be performed in addition to functional testing. Testing standards such as the ISO 9126 and methodologies such as the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM) and Systems Security Engineering Capability Maturity Model® (SSE-CMM) that were covered in chapter 1 can be leveraged when security testing is performed.
