A Method and Case Study for Using Malware Analysis to Improve Security Requirements

  • Abstract

    In this article, the authors propose to enhance current software development lifecycle models by implementing a process for including use cases that are based on previous cyberattacks and their associated malware. Following the proposed process, the authors believe that developers can create future systems that are more secure, from inception, by including use cases that address previous attacks. In support of this, the authors present a case study of a malware sample that is used to generate new requirements for a mobile application.
