"This book addresses software developers and designers, but it also has potential impact for those involved anywhere in the production of software. IT project managers in particular can benefit from this concept-heavy presentation because they need not wade into the waters of code."

"Designing Secure Software creates a roadmap for building towards more secure software programs. Loren Kohnfelder draws upon technical knowledge gained and developed during his 20+ year career at Microsoft and Google to arm software engineers at any level with the security mindset and tools needed to create secure software. This book is comprehensive in scope and provides many excellent examples in python and C to aid in designing software securely."

"Designing Secure Software is a fantastic bridge between the worlds of security and development, which can benefit both sides greatly by providing them not only with the other side's perspective of a project, but also with a common vocabulary and means of communicating efficiently. I wish I had this book when I was transitioning from developer to cybersecurity engineer."

"Provides an in depth look on promoting secure software development and breaks down complex subjects into relatable examples. Contains methodologies that are helpful to remember in threat modeling and lessons to take from past software failures."
—Jessica W., Advanced Reviewer
"Very clear and easy reading, and the examples used are both captivating and easy to understand . . . A worthwhile read for both software developers and security engineers working the application security space. It distinguishes itself by focusing on concepts rather than being a checklist of individual items to focus on."
