Flashcards in Software Development Deck (22):
Collection of all the hardware, software, & firmware within a computer system that contains all elements of the system responsible for supporting the security policy & the isolation of objects.
Trusted Computing Base
A development model in which each phase contains a list of activities that must be performed & documented before the next phase begins.
Waterfall Development Model
Takes advantage of the dependency on the timing of events that take place in a multitasking operating system.
Time of Check/Time of User (TOC/TOU) Attack
Allows the operating system to provide well-defined & structured access to processes that need to user resources according to a controlled & tightly managed schedule.
Level of confidence that software is free from vulnerabilities, either intentionally designed into the software or accidentally inserted at any time during its life cycle, & that it functions in the intended manner.
A Microsoft high-level interface for all kinds of data.
ActiveX Data Objects (ADO)
Maturity model focused on quality management processes & has five maturity levels that contain several key practices within each maturity level.
Capability Maturity Model for Software (CMM or SW-CMM)
Set of standards that addresses the need for interoperability between hardware & software products.
Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA)
A program written with functions & intent to copy & disperse itself without the knowledge & cooperation of the owner or user of the computer.
Monitoring & managing changes to a program or documentation.
An information flow that is not controlled by a security control.
Conversion of electronic data into another form, called ciphertext, which cannot be easily understood by anyone except authorized parties.
Practice of examining the large databases in order to generate new information.
Suite of application programs that typically manages large, structured sets or persistent data.
Database Management Systems (DMS)
Describes the relationship between the data elements & provides a framework for organizing the data.
An approach based on lean & agile principles in which business owners & the development, operations, & quality assurance departments collaborate.
A record of the events occurring within an organization's systems & networks.
A management technique that simultaneously integrates all essential acquisition activities through the use of multidisciplinary teams to optimize the design, manufacturing, & supportability processes.
Integrated Product & Process Development (IPPD)
Development models that allow for successive refinements or requirements, design, & coding.
A mathematical, statistical, & visualization method of identifying valid & useful patterns in data.
Knowledge Discovery in Databases
Information about data.
