"Major Security Issues in Agile Software Development Methodologies"
This presentation is the result of over a year of ongoing Empirical Research at the University of Southampton in the UK on Security Issues in Agile. The research was conducted on the most publicised and predominant security related proposals and solutions offered by practitioners of Security and Agile which attempted to add best practices of security into the most popular flavors of Agile methods such as Scrum, XP, FDD, and TDD.
The presentation will outline the most predominant and discussed security issues in Agile and elaborate on the need for each proposal and the apprent level of concensus reached on the topic by researchers as well as practitioners working in the field.
The presentation will include the major points of discussion and results from all aspects of the practice and theory. The attendees will learn the most up-to-date information about how to move Agile forward on critical projects involving security and how to achieve a consistent Secure Development Lifecycle for their respective companies.
This information was also presented in the Empirical Software Engineering and Measurement Conference (ESEM 2010) as a representative sample of the state of security practice in Agile in Bolzano-Bozen, Italy.
The presentation will be followed by a short 5 minute Q/A in order to give a change for the audience to ask questions.
