A large portion of security vulnerabilities result from mistakes in the design or code of software systems. To address this problem, secure development lifecycle practices have been introduced into the software engineering curriculum at five different universities. Each phase of the software development lifecycle has been modified in at least one university to incorporate security. This paper provides a survey of practices involved in the secure development lifecycle and describes how these practices can be introduced into the software engineering curriculum. Each contributor discusses his or her experiences and challenges while integrating security into one phase of the software development process.
