Microsoft Secure


This post is authored by Andrew Marshall, Principal Security Program Manager, Security Engineering.

For well over a decade, Microsoft has been committed to designing, developing, and testing software in a secure and trustworthy manner and sharing the Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) methodology and resources with the software development community. We are continuing to make investments into the evolution of the SDL and resources we provide to enable the ecosystem to adapt to new technology and the ever-changing threat landscape.

Today, we’re announcing an important new round of updates and technical content additions to the SDL website. These updates are rolled out to provide up to date guidance and best practices that evolve with the Security Development Lifecycle. We’ve made updates to security tooling guidance, compiler and cryptographic recommendations, and the SDL Developer Starter Kit.

The SDL represents our strategic investment in improving security across the ecosystem and over the next few months we will make additional changes to the Security Development Lifecycle website. Check back for new content detailing how you can implement SDL in the world of Continuous Release/Continuous Development and Dev Ops.
