The OWASP Software Security Assurance Process (OSSAP) main intent is to embed security in the software development lifecycle (SDLC). OSSAP reduces the possibility of requirement oversights, design flaws, implementation bugs and deployment configuration mistakes during the SDLC. This project outlines mandatory and recommended processes and practices to manage risks associated with applications. What is exactly Software Assurance? Software assurance is defined as the level of confidence that software is free from vulnerabilities, either intentionally designed into the software or accidentally inserted at any time during its life cycle, and that the software functions in the intended manner.
