Sandia National Laboratories (SNL)’s Data and Software Security team is strengthening the security posture of SNL’s software development practices through our Software Assurance Integrated Lifecycle (SAIL™). We are leading change by moving security earlier in the development process and providing a comprehensive approach that integrates and automates security through the development lifecycle. The approach addresses everything from training to testing and scanning, with the understanding that education and tools must be leveraged for security. SNL wishes to share this approach with the broader community to both educate those that may be more nascent in their journey and to gain feedback on our approach. By following these steps, regardless of the programming methodology or framework being used, SNL believes that the security of software applications can be improved, reducing both the risk and cost to the organization than if vulnerabilities are found after the product has deployed.
