Abstract:

Defense Research and Development Canada DRDC Valcartier, with the support of the CRAC Laboratory at Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, carried out an ambitious RD project aiming at developing a tool called SOCLe which integrates the design of software applications with their security. Integrating the design of software applications and security into a unique tool is not only particularly innovative but also crucial to ensure the quality and security of critical command and control information systems. Moreover, as it is 50 to 100 times more expensive to correct a software error once the design phase is finished, detecting and correcting errors at design-time saves time and money. This paper presents the SOCLe projects major achievements along with a simplified case study on Caveats, as an illustrative example of a possible military application for this new technology.
