Heyman, Thomas; Yskout, Koen; Scandariato, Riccardo; Schmidt, Holger and Yu, Yijun (2011). The Security Twin Peaks. In: Engineering Secure Software and Systems - Third International Symposium, 09-10 Feb 2011, Madrid, Spain.



The feedback from architectural decisions to the elaboration of requirements is an established concept in the software engineering community. However, pinpointing the nature of this feedback in a precise way is a largely open problem. Often, the feedback is generically characterized as additional qualities that might be affected by an architect’s choice. This paper provides a practical perspective on this problem by leveraging architectural security patterns. The contribution of this paper is the Security Twin Peaks model, which serves as an operational framework to co-develop security in the requirements and the architectural artifacts.
