Security Benefits for Agile Software Development
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.
