patterns & practices Security Engineering Cheat Sheet

We posted our patterns & practices Security Engineering Cheat Sheet to our Application Architecture Knowledge Base on CodePlex.   It’s a bird’s-eye view of applying our security techniques to the life cycle.  The techniques and approach shipped with VSTS/MSF Agile starting in 2005.
