Software Security, SSDLC, Secure Software, Diffusion of Innovation, Adoption.
Software security remains an important issue. Security must be prioritized as a functional requirement to build secure software. Security must also be incorporated in every stage of the SDLC by practicing a secure SDLC (SSDLC). There are various SDLC models, each with emphasized priorities, strengths, and weaknesses.Increasing the security of more published software requires that SMEs, the majority ofsoftware publishers, adopt and practice the SSDLC. In promoting the SSDLC, there is a need to know if efforts should be adapted to the various SDLC models. This study empirically examined the effect of SDLC models on the innovation characteristics of the SSDLC derived from the Diffusion of innovation theory and the intention to adopt the SSDLC. A sample of software security managers of software SMEs in the United States was surveyed for the SDLC model used, their perception of the relative advantage, trialability, observability, complexity, and compatibility of the SSDLC, and intention to adopt the SSDLC. A Kruskal-Wallis test performed on the data showed no statistically significant differences between SDLC model groups for relative advantage, compatibility, trialability, observability, complexity, and intention to adopt the SSDLC. Results also indicated that SME Software security managers, on average, would be inclined to adopt the SSDLC if given the impetus. SSDLC adoption efforts can be mostly uniformly applied across the SDLC models. Software security policymakers may find the results of this study useful for SSDLC adoption policy formulation.
