In addition to enable students to understand the theories and various analysis and design techniques, an effective way of improving students’ capabilities of developing secure software is to develop their capabilities of using these theories, techniques and effective tools in the security software development process. In this paper, the development and delivery of a graduate-level course on secure software engineering with the above objective at Arizona State University are presented. The developing process, stimulating techniques and tools used in this course, as well as lessons learned from this effort, are discussed.
