In the drive for safer coding, Paul Maher (Microsoft UK) and Alex Mackman (CM Group Ltd) assembled this handbook of security activity guidance from patterns & practices content. This handbook is a great complement to the material that was integrated into MSF (see Integrating patterns & practices Guidance with MSF). [via MSDN Flash]
To build software that meets your security objectives, you must integrate security activities into your software development lifecycle. This handbook captures and summarises the key security engineering activities that should be an integral part of your software development processes.
