From J.D.,

After a great deal of arm-twisting, Wade agreed to let me do a session on threat modeling for the May meeting.

Threat modeling is a way of analyzing the design of a software system to identify risks that are inherent to the design. It's typically used to:

- clarify the overall design by representing it visually
- identify trust boundaries
- identify logical mistakes
- identify the security controls that need to be implemented
- guide development, review and testing of security-critical components

I'll start off with a short presentation to outline the mechanics of threat modeling. Once that's done, we'll construct a data flow diagram for a Perl web application and use it to play a card game called Elevation Of Privilege (EOP).

EOP was designed to make threat modeling more approachable for software development teams. It's intended to serve both as both a training
system and a way of kickstarting real threat modeling sessions.

In this month's presentation, G. Wade Johnson will cover his experiment creating the same basic web application in Ruby on Rails and Dancer2 on Perl. Since he has not created many applications on either platform, this is close to a first timer experience for each.

I look forward to seeing you there.
