Application Threat Modeling
Threat modeling is an approach for analyzing the security of an application. It is a structured approach that enables you to identify, quantify, and address the security risks associated with an application. When designing your application, it is essential you design using threat risk assessed controls, otherwise you will squander resources, time and money on useless controls and not enough on the real risks.
Steps performed in Application Threat Modeling:
- Decomposing the Application
- Determining and Ranking Threats
- Determining Countermeasures and Mitigation
Threat modeling is an essential process for secure web application development. It allows organizations to determine the correct controls and produce effective countermeasures within budget.
