(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR SOFTWARE SECURITY ANALYSIS
Abstract
(EN)

A security analysis of software includes analyzing security risks at each level of the hierarchy of the software and aggregating identified risks within the hierarchy levels. Weights applied during aggregation assist in homogenizing risk scores originating from different types of identified security risks and provide for the ability to communicate a meaningful risk score at each level of the hierarchy.
