This document outlines the Secure Software Development Life Cycle (SSDLC) for the Zoom Melian application, an app designed to manage meetings using Zoom account information.
In this phase, we identify and document the security requirements of the Zoom Melian application. This includes understanding the information flow, data handling, and identifying potential areas of risk. We also consider regulatory compliance requirements and industry best practices. Given the nature of the application, special attention is given to secure authentication and authorization processes, as well as data privacy and protection.
During the design phase, we incorporate security considerations into the architecture of the Zoom Melian application. This includes designing secure user authentication, secure data storage, and implementing the principle of least privilege. We also consider potential threats and how to mitigate them in the design. The application’s design will ensure that users’ Zoom account information is securely stored and accessed, and that meeting data is properly protected.
In the development phase, we adhere to secure coding practices to minimize vulnerabilities. This includes practices such as input validation, output encoding, error handling, and session management. The development process will ensure that the application’s features, such as adding different accounts and creating multiple meetings at once, are implemented securely.
During the deployment phase, we ensure secure deployment practices. This includes checking for security vulnerabilities in the deployment environment, ensuring secure configuration, and using secure protocols for data transmission. The deployment process will ensure that the application is securely installed and configured on users’ devices.
In the maintenance phase, we regularly update and patch the Zoom Melian application to address new security threats. We also monitor the application for any unusual activity that could indicate a security breach. Regular updates and patches will be released to ensure the application remains secure against emerging threats.
Having a plan in place for responding to security incidents is a crucial part of SSDLC. This involves identifying the breach, containing the damage, eradicating the cause, recovering from the incident, and notifying affected users. In the event of a security incident, we have a response plan ready to minimize damage and protect our users.
We provide regular training to our development team on secure coding practices and emerging security threats. This ensures that our team is equipped with the latest knowledge and skills to develop secure applications.
