Security Changes Everything

Watts Humphrey

The Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon University

With the pervasive use of the Internet, security is becoming a critical requirement for almost all systems. In this talk, Mr. Humphrey reviews the security situation and how the evolving threat of security attacks on our national infrastructure will necessarily change the way we design, develop, test, and support software systems. He closes with some comments on what this increased emphasis on security means to the software development community.
