How To Use This Guidance

The security guidance is packaged as a series of modules. This modular approach to guidance ensures that each document has high context precision. This means that when you have a specific problem, you will find specific guidance that will give you the steps to work through the problem to a successful conclusion. This also means that each module can stand alone or be placed together into a larger whole and that you can use multiple entry-points to get to the guidance you need.

Security Engineering

patterns & practices Security Engineering builds on, refines, and extends core development activities to create security-specific activities.

Guides

The following guides are available on MSDN and are also available as books:

Scenarios and Solutions

Scenario and Solution modules show common end-to-end application scenarios, such as a Web server to database server intranet scenario, and present the common solutions. Each Scenario and Solution includes skeletal representations of the before and after pictures. They highlight the key issues and the main engineering decisions that represent risk. For example, this includes decisions around authentication, authorization, and secure communications. The library of Scenarios and Solutions is organized by application type and problem domain.

Guidelines

Guideline modules organize key information and explain what to do, why you should do it, and how you can implement it. Guideline modules often have corresponding checklists.

Practices at a Glance

Practices at a Glance modules are quick answers organized around common tasks and questions.

Checklists

Checklists enumerate recommendations as itemized lists. The recommendations within the checklists are typically organized using an information model based on a problem domain.

How Tos

How Tos provide step-by-step, task-based guidance.
