Author(s): Lynn Ann Futcher, Rossouw von Solms

Abstract: Many IT undergraduate programs neglect to address the importance of integrating information security into the software development lifecycle. SecSDM is an integrated, risk-based methodology for supporting IT undergraduate students in secure software development. A software tool, based on the SecSDM methodology, has been developed to provide a means by which to apply this methodology to software development projects. However, from a developer's perspective, any such software tool needs to be usable. This means that such a tool should have good utility, be effective to use, efficient to use, safe to use, easy to learn, easy to remember and satisfying to use. This paper provides an overview of the SecSDM methodology and presents the results of a user satisfaction survey relating to the SecSDM software tool.
