Software vulnerabilities are defects or weaknesses in a software system that, if exploited, can lead to compromise of the control of a system or the information it contains. The problem of vulnerabilities in fielded software is pervasive and serious. In 2012, SEI researchers began investigating vulnerabilities reported to the SEI's CERT Division and determined that a large number of significant and pernicious software vulnerabilities likely had their origins early in the software development lifecycle in the requirements and design phases.In this podcast, SEI researchers Mike Konrad and Art Mansion discuss a project that was launched to investigate design-related vulnerabilities and quantify their effects.
