Cases Examples: Collaboration Results

Collaborations with us continue to produce results that benefit the software engineering and cybersecurity communities.

Cyber Intelligence Tradecraft

SEI researchers benchmarked a baseline data from 26 organizations against an analytic framework to determine the state of best practices in cyber intelligence.

Software Assurance Curriculum

CERT researchers, collaborating with a team of educators from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Monmouth University, and Stevens Institute of Technology built a model curriculum for software assurance education and defined strategies to implement it.

Architecture Analysis and Design Language

SEI experts in embedded systems provided technical leadership for the standards effort led by the U.S. Army AMRDEC Software Engineering Directorate (SED) that developed the Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL), an international industry standard.

Rate Monotonic Analysis

SEI researchers applied the theory of generalized rate monotonic scheduling, Rate Monotonic Analysis (RMA), to evolve a set of analytic tools for real-time systems.

Architecture Evaluation

Discovering that software architecture is essential to the achievement of system qualities, SEI researchers developed the evaluation method called the Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM).


Knowing that secure software is not built by accident, CERT researchers integrated secure coding techniques into the Team Software Process (TSP) so that high quality, secure software can be developed with predictable cost and schedule results.
