Publisher's Summary

In Threats: What Every Engineer Should Learn From Star Wars, accomplished security expert and educator Adam Shostack delivers an accessible and engaging discussion of security threats and how to develop secure systems. The book will prepare you to take on the Dark Side as you learn—in a structured and memorable way—about the threats to your systems. You'll move from thinking of security issues as clever one-offs and learn to see the patterns they follow.

This book brings to light the burning questions software developers should be asking about securing systems, and answers them in a fun and entertaining way, incorporating cybersecurity lessons from the much-loved Star Wars series. You don't need to be fluent in over six million forms of exploitation to face these threats with the steely calm of a Jedi master.

You'll also find: understandable and memorable introductions to the most important threats that every engineer should know; straightforward software security frameworks that will help engineers bake security directly into their systems; strategies to align large teams to achieve application security in today's fast-moving and agile world; and strategies attackers use, like tampering, to interfere with the integrity of applications and systems, and the kill chains that combine these threats into fully executed campaigns.
