Threat Modeling Challenge

Threat Modeling is arguably the single most important activity in an application security program and if performed early can identify a wide range of potential flaws before a single line of code has been written. While being so critically important there is no single correct way to perform Threat Modeling, many techniques, methodologies and/or tools exist. As part of our challenge we will present contestants with the exact same design and compare the outputs they produce against a number of categories in order to identify a winner.



*Results are due by 17:00 on Saturday.
