The lecture covers multiple methods aimed at the creation of secure software, ranging from threat modeling and vulnerability analysis, specification mechanisms, security-aware software development and testing (Security by Design), and general best practices. After attending this course, we expect students are able to create, test and certify secure software and to have developed a profound understanding of security in the context of software engineering.
