         The system development process is an evolution of steps performed for a given purpose. It includes a set of actions performed to develop, maintain, and distribute a secure software system. Security should be an integral part of this process because of the consequences which could occur if security is not taken into account. The system will benefit from the use of stronger security because it reduces the probability and/or impact of breaches in security. Decisions relating to system boundaries, interfaces, and architecture are often made early in the development process. These decisions must include an assessment of the security risks, threats and vulnerabilities because the aftermath of these decisions will have a significant effect on the system’s security. Integrating security into the development process will be much easier than trying to add security after the development process is completed.
