hi marinus,

Sorry for the (spam filter related) delay!

Two of the steps that we define in the ARA article address your idea directly.  Step1: known-attack analysis certainly 
leverages knowledge about components, packages, and design patterns (associated with known attacks) and "stuff you 
inherit."  And, step3: dependency analysis is almost entirely focused on what you suggest.

Subject: [SC-L] SearchSecurity: Architecture Risk Analysis


We have a step were we figure out how the various architecture intersect and synthesize together. After all you inherit 
more than you define and deliver.



hi sc-l,

Software security in general spends a lot of time talking about bugs---too much time, I believe.  We all know that 
software defects come in two major subclasses: bugs (in the implementation) and flaws (in the design).  So, how do you 
find and FIX flaws?

That's what this month's SearchSecurity column is about.  This article about finding security flaws in software with 
Architecture Risk Analysis.  It is co-authored by Jim DelGrosso who is a Principal Consultant at Cigital and runs the 
Architecture practice.

We know this approach works, because we actually use it every day (and have done so for over a decade):
