Building Assured Systems Framework (BASF)
The BASF can help you evaluate research and development methods for building assured systems by helping you solve these common questions:
- How do I decide which security methods fit into a
specific life-cycle activity?
- How do I know if a specific security method is
sufficiently mature for me to use on my projects?
- When should I take a chance on a security research
approach that has not been widely used?
- What actions can I take when I have no approach or
method for prioritizing and selecting new research or
when promising research appears to be unrelated to
other research in the field?
