Secure Software Development Lifecycle demystified: tools and lessons from building financial applications.


Nowadays, enterprises strive to continually hone their software development process and practices up to the point where continuous deployment in production is a given; the finance sector is no exception, with both business challenges and regulation compliance as the main driving forces for continuous change.

However, releasing new product features many times a day becomes a crucial challenge in terms of software security, and integrating manual/automated security assessment in the build and delivery pipeline is only the tip of the iceberg.

Secure Software Development Practices (S-SDLC) aim at addressing security issues in a much broader perspective, starting from the prerequisites and design of an application, up to the delivery in production.

This talk will discuss S-SDLC practices, (Open Source) tools, lessons learned, and issues from our experience in building web applications for many large banking and insurance companies.
