Abstract

While the number of mobile and web applications is growing exponentially, the mobile and web security threat landscape is growing explosively. Malicious malware may attack vulnerable applications and obtain personal or enterprise confidential data anywhere and anytime. Most vulnerabilities should be addressed and fixed during the early stages of software development. However, many software development professionals lack the awareness of the importance of security vulnerabilities and the necessary knowledge and skills at the software development stage. This paper addresses the needs and challenges of the lack of pedagogical materials and real-world learning environment in ProActive Control for Software Security (PASS) through effective, engaging, and investigative authentic learning approaches.
