The Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle (SDL)

Microsoft SDL

The Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) is the industry-leading software security assurance process. A Microsoft-wide initiative and a mandatory policy since 2004, SDL has played a critical role in embedding security and privacy into Microsoft software and culture. Combining a holistic and practical approach, SDL introduces security and privacy early and throughout the development process. It has led Microsoft to measurable and widely recognized security improvements in flagship products such as Windows Vista and SQL Server. As part of its commitment to supporting a more secure and trustworthy computing ecosystem, Microsoft is making SDL process guidance, tools and training available for every developer.
