Security Modeling Tools

January 2017 Podcast
Julien Delange

In this podcast, Julien Delange discusses security modeling tools that his team developed and how to use them to capture vulnerabilities and their propagation path in an architecture.

“We started to develop these tools a year ago to see how you can present your vulnerabilities; how you can see how a fault propagates within the architecture.”


Software Engineering Institute




Recent research indicates that security is no longer only a matter of code and is tightly linked to software architecture. SEI researchers have created security-focused modeling tools that capture vulnerabilities and their propagation paths in an architecture. These security-focused modeling tools help security analysts and researchers improve system and software analysis. In this podcast, Julien Delange discusses the motivation for the work, the available tools, and how to use them.
