What You Will Learn

This (ISC)² authorized CSSLP training seminar is based on the eight CSSLP domains of the (ISC)² Common Body of Knowledge (CBK), ensuring students successfully prepare for the CSSLP exam and enhancing their overall competencies in secure software development.

  • Domain 1: Secure Software Concepts
  • Domain 2: Secure Software Requirements
  • Domain 3: Secure Software Design
  • Domain 4: Secure Software Implementation/Coding
  • Domain 5: Secure Software Testing
  • Domain 6: Software Acceptance
  • Domain 7: Software Deployment, Operations, Maintenance and Disposal
  • Domain 8: Supply Chain and Software Acquisition

Domain 1: Secure Software Concepts

The first domain of our CSSLP course covers the mechanisms that permit managers of a software system to exercise a directing or restraining influence over the behavior, use, and content of the system. These concepts permit management to specify what users can do, which resources managers can access, and what operations they can perform on a system.

CSSLP Training Objectives

  • Core Concepts
  • Security Design Principles
  • Privacy
  • Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC)
  • Software Development Methodologies

Domain 2: Secure Software Requirements

The Secure Software Requirements domain covers the controls used during the requirements phase of the Software Development Lifecycle to integrate security into the software development process, to identify key security objectives, and to maximize software security while minimizing disruption to plans and schedules.

CSSLP Training Objectives

  • Policy Decomposition
  • Data Classification and Categorization
  • Functional Requirements
  • Operational Requirements

Domain 3: Secure Software Design

This domain, Secure Software Design, addresses the definition of the overall structure of the software from a security perspective, documenting the elements of the software attack surface, conducting threat modeling, and defining and specific security criteria that must be met before the software is released.

CSSLP Training Objectives

  • Design Processes
  • Design Considerations
  • Securing Commonly Used Architecture
  • Technologies

Domain 4: Secure Software Implementation/Coding

The Secure Software Implementation/Coding domain involves the application of coding and testing standards, applying security testing tools including “fuzzing”, static-analysis code scanning tools, and conducting code reviews.

CSSLP Training Objectives

  • Declarative Versus Imperative
  • Vulnerability Databases
  • Defensive Coding Practices and Controls
  • Source Code and Versioning
  • Development and Build Environment
  • Code/Peer Review
  • Code Analysis
  • Anti-Tampering Techniques

Domain 5: Secure Software Testing

The Secure Software Testing domain refers to the phase in the secure software development lifecycle where the software is functionally complete and ready to enter user beta testing. The goal of Secure Software Testing phase is to determine if the final software meets the requirements.

CSSLP Training Objectives

  • Testing Artifacts
  • Testing for Security and Quality Assurance
  • Types of Testing
  • Impact Assessment and Corrective Action
  • Test Data Lifecycle Management

Domain 6: Software Acceptance

The Software Acceptance domain covers the content in determining if the software is ready to deliver to customers from a security viewpoint. The domain provides an overall picture of the security posture of the software and the likelihood that it will be able to withstand attack after the software has been released to customers.

CSSLP Training Objectives

  • Pre-Release and Pre-Deployment
  • Post-Release

Domain 7: Software Deployment, Operations, Maintenance and Disposal

The Software Deployment, Operations, Maintenance and Disposal domain deals with the vulnerabilities that have not been eliminated from the software as shipped as well as new attacks that would be discovered after the software has been shipped, and when software that was “secure” would be found to be vulnerable. The objective in this domain is to learn from errors and to use the information provided in vulnerability reports to help detect and eliminate further vulnerabilities before they are discovered in the field and used to put customers at risk. The problem management process also helps the product team and the security team adapt processes so that similar errors are not introduced in the future.

CSSLP Training Objectives

  • Installation and Deployment
  • Operations and Maintenance
  • Software Disposal

Domain 8: Supply Chain and Software Acquisition

The last domain in this course, Supply Chain and Software Acquisition, provides a holistic outline of the knowledge and tasks required by a CSSLP candidate in managing risk for outsourced development, acquisition, and procurement of software and related services (e.g. Cloud Computing, Mobile Application development). This domain defines the expectations of an organization when acquiring software such that it can be assured that a product will not act maliciously, whether intended or not, nor disrupt its business and result in negative financial impact.

CSSLP Training Objectives

  • Supplier Risk Assessment
  • Supplier Sourcing
  • Software Development and Test
  • Software Delivery, Operations and Maintenance
  • Supplier Transitioning

The intended audience for the CSSLP training program is professionals who are involved in any phase of the software development life-cycle and those who are responsible for application security practices. Typically speaking, CSSLP is ideal for those working in roles such as, but not limited to:


  • Software Architect
  • Software Engineer
  • Software Developer
  • Application Security Specialist
  • Software Program Manager
  • Quality Assurance Tester
  • Penetration Tester
  • Software Procurement Analyst
  • Project Manager
  • Security Manager
  • IT Director/Manager
