Building secure systems with threat modeling

Learning goal: How to design a secure product with threat modeling. Share useful models to evoke insight and communicate with others. Inspire and convince others to collaborate on threat modeling in a continuous workflow.

Thursday June 15th, 09:00 - 17:30
Room Lemaire

Threat Modeling is a structured methodology to efficiently analyze complex systems. This can help you identify weaknesses and prioritize appropriate countermeasures. But to maximize its effect, this must be an ongoing practice, not just a one-time activity, so we also introduce a more lightweight "value driven" approach for security-minded developers.

The threat modeling techniques taught in this workshop will guide you in contributing to your product's security, focusing on security features, and designing a secure product architecture.

Content overview
  • What is threat modeling? Why bother?
  • Universal principles: a common framework for threat modeling, best practices, and anti-patterns
  • Modeling basics: teaching you to draw diagrams!
  • Application decomposition: using a diagram to find important details and identify assumptions
  • Threat identification: recognize threats and other security issues that need attention.
  • Countermeasures: effective mitigation strategies
  • Retrospective: what signals to look for when reviewing a model
  • Lightweight approaches: Value driven approach to lightweight threat modeling
