1 <h5>Building secure software</h5> The Internet continues to change the role that software plays in the business world, fundamentally and radically. Software no longer simply supports back offices and home entertainment; instead, software has become the lifeblood of our businesses and has become deeply entwined into our lives. The invisible hand of Internet software enables E-business; automates supply chains; and provides instant, worldwide access to information. At the same time, Internet software is moving into our cars, our televisions, our home security systems and even our toasters. All of this software introduces security risk. Software is the biggest problem in computer security today [McGraw, 1999]. A majority of organizations invest in security by buying and maintaining a firewall, but go on to let anybody access multiple Internet-enabled applications through the firewall. These applications are often remotely exploitable, rendering the firewall impotent (not to mention the fact that the firewall is often a piece of fallible software itself). Contrary to popular belief, cryptography alone cannot solve the software security problem. Trust in Cyberspace reports, for example, that 85% of CERT security advisories (through 1998) could not have been prevented with cryptography [Schneider, 1998]. Internet-enabled applications present the largest category
