<li>SCAT is a <span style="text-decoration:underline;">process integrity tool</span>, implementing a consistent, authorized and auditable software development process
== <b>Introduction</b><br> ==
 
There are 3 domains to consider when securing software development.
 
<ol>
 
<li><b>The secure software development process</b>: .......</li>
 
<li><b>Developing secure code</b>: Helping the development team build secure software</li>
 
<li><b>Continuous improvement</b>:..........</li>
 
</ol>
 
  
<br>
+
<li>SCAT is used by development teams to build, verify and assure secure software
This OWASP project focuses on the Developing secure code domain and details the why and how behind the Secure software assurance tool.<br>
+
<ul>
<i>I've detailed the other domains in an article that will be published in the Nov/Dec issue of the ISC2 magazine, I will add a link here after publication.</i>
+
<br>
+
<li><strong>Build</strong>: uses a combination of code level guidance, on demand training and DAST tools to train, guide and verify correct implementation
 +
 +
<li><strong>Verify</strong>: uses a combination of manual test plans and SATS tools to guide and verify correct implementation
 +
 +
<li><strong>Assure</strong>: centrally stores and publishes evidence of secure development and testing as an audit trail. Providing traceability through requirements and proving that security <span style="text-decoration:underline;">controls operate efficiently over a period of time</span>
 +
</li>  
 +
</ul>
  
== Why the Secure software assurance tool==
+
<li>SCAT is <span style="text-decoration:underline;">not a point in time security verification tool </span>for detecting vulnerabilities after development</li>
 +
</ul>
  
<br>
+
==Process integrity and point in time tools: How they work in the SDLC==
=== Secure software development has a number of stakeholders.===
 
<ol>
 
<li><b>IT risk</b>: I need to know where my highest risks are, so I can focus on mitigating these</li>
 
<li><b>Information security</b>: I need to generate a list f security requirements to protect against vulnerabilities</li>
 
<li><b>Compliance and Assurance</b>: I need to ensure the code meets security requirements and we have evidence proving that</li>
 
<li><b>Business</b>:  I need to get the functionality to the market before our competitors </li>
 
<li><b>Development teams</b>: I need to do all of the above and within a two week sprint cycle :-)</li>
 
</ol>

<h1><b>Technical Description</b></h1>
The Secures software assurance tool helps development teams meet these requirements.
 
</span>
 
  
== <b>What does a secure software development process look like for these stakeholders</b><br>==
+
==Without further complicating development environment==
For every sprint cycle
+
<ul>
<ol>
 
<li><b>IT risk</b>: Needs to understand the functional requirement and <b>identify the risks associated</b> with implementing it</li>
 
<li><b>Information security</b>: Needs to understand the technology behind the functional requirement and its associated risks.  Then <b>generate a list of security requirements</b> to protect the technology against exploitation</li>
 
<li><b>Development teams</b>: Need to <b>implement</b> the technology, <b>test it and record evidence</b> proving the security requirements are met and </li>
 
<li><b>Approvers</b>:  Need to review testing evidence against the organisations risk tolerance levels. Then <b>accept the risk associate with the functional requirement</b> by approving the release</li>
 
<li><b>Compliance and Assurance</b>: Need to review the testing evidence collected by the development teams and <b>verify its consistency, traceability and quality</b></li>
 
</ol>
 
  
<br>
+
<li>SCAT is a simple 5 screen MVC, C# web application with a small footprint that can be deployed without further complicating development environment
== <b>Why is it so hard to meet these stakeholder requirements?</b><br>==
 
<ol>
 
<li><b>Huge body of security knowledge</b>: Development, security, risk, compliance and assurance teams need to combine their GDPR, ISO, risk tolerances level, OWASP ASVS, security testing, JAVA and .Net knowledge, filter it, and apply it to critical application functions</li>
 
    <ul>
 
        <li><i>Solution</i>: A tool that centrally stores environment relevant GDPR, ISO, risk tolerance level, OWASP ASVS, security testing, JAVA and .Net security requirements</li>
 
        <li><i>Benefit</i>: Centrally storing the security information will be a big once of effort that needs periodic review, but will speed up the requirements generation process make it consistent and repeatable.  The more dev teams you have the bigger the benefit </li>
 
    </ul>
 
<li><b>Complex environments</b>: Most organisational IT environments consist of many moving parts, e.g. rapidly evolving development languages, cloud vs on premise.  These require continuous security effort and strains already scares security resources</li>
 
    <ul>
 
        <li><i>Solution</i>: A tool that maintains an internal mapping of which security requirements apply to which risks, technologies and application critical functions</li>
 
        <li><i>Benefit</i>: Creating this mapping is again a big once of effort that needs periodic review, but will result in a filtered list of security requirements, giving clear and consistent security guidance across the various technical environment components</li>
 
    </ul>
 
<li><b>Huge number of complex security requirements</b>: Development teams do not understand the complicated security requirements, let alone know how to implement these in code and test them after.  Also, the flexibility of development languages and different experience levels of developers almost guarantee that every dev team will implement the security requirement differently</li>
 
    <ul>
 
        <li><i>Solution</i>: A tool that stores a language specific and approved secure code building block against each security requirement, guiding the developers on how to implement the security requirement constantly</li>
 
        <li><i>Benefit</i>: Developing these secure code blocks will be a big once of effort that needs periodic review, but will help with the consistent implementation of security requirements across teams, technologies and critical application functions</li>
 
        <li><i>Solution</i>: A tool that stores a set of OWASP tests against each risk, guiding the testing team on how to correctly validate the security requirement has been met</li>
 
        <li><i>Benefit</i>: Developing scripts for these tests will be a big once of effort that needs periodic review,  but will help with maintaining a consistent quality of risk testing across teams, technologies and critical application functions</li>
 
        <li><i>Solution</i>: A tool that allows developers to run an "on demand" OWASP ZAP basic scan on their code to verify they have correctly implemented the security requirements</li>
 
        <li><i>Benefit</i>: Immediate feedback loop</li>
 
        <li><i>Solution</i>: A tool that allows developers to open an "on demand" risk training sandbox environment.  Allowing developers to learn how to exploit and defend against the risk</li>
 
        <li><i>Benefit</i>: On demand, hands on environment specific training</li>
 
    </ul>
 
<li><b>Lengthy and cumbersome approval process</b>: Once development has been completed, the approvers need to wade their way through hundreds of automated test results looking for the results relevant to the the functional requirement.  This is a lengthy process and blocks the release which almost nullifies the benefit of CI\CD</li>
 
    <ul>
 
        <li><i>Solution</i>: A tool that centrally stores testing evidence alongside the risk and application critical function</li>
 
        <li><i>Benefit</i>: Approvers can see at a glance whether or not the application critical function and its associated risks have been tested and mitigated according to risk tolerance.  Speeding up the approval process and maximising the benefit of CI\CD efforts</li>
 
    </ul>
 
<li><b>Risk management of the application landscape</b>: Risk managers have difficulty assessing the highest risk across the various technologies and and development languages in their environment.  Therefore cannot prioritise their efforts and track mitigation efforts</li>
 
    <ul>
 
        <li><i>Solution</i>: A tool that provides a dashboard view of applications, the associated critical functions and the risks exposed by those critical functions.  Then shows the number of secure code block and tests to mitigate the risk of exploitation</li>
 
        <li><i>Benefit</i>: Risk managers can easily see which application critical function and which risk needs extra secure code blocks and testing effort.  And see how that effort will impact the entire application landscape</li>
 
    </ul>
 
</ol>

<b>The secure coding tool provides the functionality listed above.  Helping stakeholders firstly define and include their security requirements and secondly helping them realise and monitor it.  In summary the secure coding tool attempts to fill the shoes of a first line of defence for the secure software development process</b>
 
</span>
 
  
==Description==
+
<li>Integrates with Jira and runs ZAP and SonarQube in docker containers
<span style="color:#ff0000">
 
This is where you need to add your more robust project description. A project description should outline the purpose of the project, how it is used, and the value it provides to application security. Ideally, project descriptions should be written in such a way that there is no question what value the project provides to the software security community. This section will be seen and used in various places within the Projects Portal. Poorly written project descriptions therefore detract from a project’s visibility, so project leaders should ensure that the description is meaningful.

<h1> <b>Preparation phase</b></h1>
 +
When developing secure software we need to consider both standard secure code and client specific architectural requirements
  
</ul>
+
== Standard secure code requirements==
  
== Tool setup==
 
 
<ul>
 
<ul>
 
+
        <li>SCAT comes out the box with a standard OWASP secure code requirements map. This mapping need to be modified to the specific organisation requirements</li>
[[File:Internal mapping.png|thumb]]
 
<li>Tool setup<br>  The tool lists all application critical functions.  <br>
 
And for each critical function it maintains an internal mapping that details the technologies, risks, security requirements, secure code blocks and tests. <br>
 
A basic mapping exists in the tool but needs to be customised for your environment.</li>
 
    <ol>
 
        <li><b>InfoSec, testing and development teams</b>: Use the tools OWASP data mapping screen to modify the internal mapping.  </li>
 
    </ol>
 
</ul>

A project leader is the individual who decides to lead the project throughout its lifecycle. The project leader is responsible for communicating the project’s progress to the OWASP Foundation, and he/she is ultimately responsible for the project’s deliverables. The project leader must provide OWASP with his/her real name and contact e-mail address for his/her project application to be accepted, as OWASP prides itself on the openness of its products, operations, and members.

What is the Secure code assurance tool (SCAT)

For more information on the why behind the SCAT, read my linkedIn Article here

What is the SCAT

  • SCAT is a process integrity tool, implementing a consistent, authorized and auditable software development process
  • SCAT is used by development teams to build, verify and assure secure software
    • Build: uses a combination of code level guidance, on demand training and DAST tools to train, guide and verify correct implementation
    • Verify: uses a combination of manual test plans and SATS tools to guide and verify correct implementation
    • Assure: centrally stores and publishes evidence of secure development and testing as an audit trail. Providing traceability through requirements and proving that security controls operate efficiently over a period of time
  • SCAT is not a point in time security verification tool for detecting vulnerabilities after development

Process integrity and point in time tools: How they work in the SDLC

Process integrity VS point in time without check

Without further complicating development environment

  • SCAT is a simple 5 screen MVC, C# web application with a small footprint that can be deployed without further complicating development environment
  • Integrates with Jira and runs ZAP and SonarQube in docker containers
  • SCAT is part of three domains to consider when securing software development. I've detailed the other domains in an article that will be published in the Nov/Dec issue of the ISC2 magazine, I will add a link here after publication.

See below how the Secure code assurance tool integrates security into software development phases

Sprint planning phase

Objective: Ensures security requirements are understood

  • Developers use the Identify risks screen to
    1. Select the critical function to developing/changing
    2. Identify the technologies used
    3. Automatically generate the security requirements and tests
    4.                See how to use the tools and its internal mapping to generate security requirements
      
  • Product owners use the Secure code requirements screen to
    1. Create an audit trail to store evidence of secure development
    2. Create Jira tickets for requirements and tests to manage work

Development phase

Objective: Ensure correct implementation of security requirements

Secure code review phase

Objective: Ensure correct implementation of security requirements

Testing phase

Objective: Ensure valid security testing

Approval phase

Objective: Streamline the approval and audit process

Risk management

Objective: Enable risk managers to prioritise, plan and monitor mitigation efforts

  • Risk managers use the Application risk exposure screen to
    1. View each application critical function and the associated risks
    2. Identify where mitigation effort is required by viewing which risks require security requirements
    3. Identify where development effort is required by viewing which security requirements need secure code blocks
    4. Identify where extra testing effort is required by viewing which risks require security test plans
    5.                See how the Application landscape overview screen informs risk based decision making
      



When developing secure software we need to consider both standard secure code and client specific architectural requirements

Standard secure code requirements

  • SCAT comes out the box with a standard OWASP secure code requirements map. This mapping need to be modified to the specific organisation requirements

  • Information security and development team use the Internal mapping screen to
    1. Map the security requirements to OWASP risks
    2. Map organisation approved secure code blocks to security requirements
    3. Map security test plans to OWASP risks
    4.                See how to setup the SCAT's internal mapping
      

Client specific architectural requirements

  • To generate these requirements we perform a risk assessment on client application landscape and identify
    1. Critical applications and functions
    2. Risk associated with each critical application function
    3. Architectural security requirements to secure each critical application functions
    4. Client specific secure code blocks to implement security requirements
    5. Secure test plans to verify risk has been mitigated


  • Tool administrators use the Internal mapping screen to
    1. Create json files of the organisation specific risks, security requirements, secure code blocks and tests
    2. Import these into the SCAT
    3.     See how to import organisations specific risks, security requirements, secure code blocks and tests
