Security Benefits for Agile Software Development

S. Hassan Adelyar, Alex Norta

Abstract— Agile methodologies such as scrum, Extreme Programming (XP) and Feature-Driven Development (FDD) are efficient development processes by accepting changes at any phase and delivering software quickly to customers. However, these methodologies have been criticized because of the unavailability of security as an important quality goal of software systems. Although there are pre-existing research results on this topic, there is no pure approach for identifying security benefits of XP practices that relate to the core “embrace-changes” principle of agile. Specifically, we analyze XP practices to find the security benefits in customer- and developer activities.
