Limited resources preclude software engineers from finding and fixing all vulnerabilities in a software system. We create predictive models to identify which components are likely to have the most security risk. Software engineers can use these models to make measurement-based risk management decisions and to prioritize software security fortification efforts, such as redesign and additional inspection and testing. We mined and analyzed data from a large commercial telecommunications software… CONTINUE READING
