Threat modeling is a structured approach to identifying and managing application threats. Your application development process should begin with threat modeling, also known as Architectural Risk Analysis. Your protection is meaningless without it. It is inevitable to encounter a variety of security issues during the development of a piece of software. These issues include security design errors, security coding errors, and security configuration errors, as well as multiple security challenges in every phase of the process.
The best way to reduce risks is to start with threat modeling as soon as possible. That's why it's typically done during the design phase. The goal of threat modeling is to identify vulnerabilities in a system and to document, discuss, and document the security implications of its design, code, and configuration.
Applications Threat Modeling is useful for fixing security flaws in the design phase, but there are many other reasons to start today
Infratech usually follows three steps when it comes to threat modeling
As a first step, we analyze the threat diagrammatically in order to better understand what we are planning to build.
Identifying threats is the next step that we should take in order to know what things can go wrong in the future.
As our last step, we have mitigation, in which we analyze what we are doing to defend ourselves against threats.
