A Software Development Methodology for Secure Web Application

Junho Lee, Jungwoong Woo, Cheongan Lee, Kyungsoo Joo


In recent years, there has been a demand for Web applications with complex functions. In addition, most web applications efficiently manage data based on databases. While the key and critical dimension of developing these Web applications is analysis and design, most object-oriented analysis and design methods do not have a consistent view of the database. In addition, Java Enterprise Edition (EE) -based technologies are used in Web application implementations, but they do not provide any correlation with the database. On the other hand, as users' demands for security increase, security becomes more important. To this end, Java EE and database systems provide security solutions. However, it does not provide any correlation with object-oriented analysis and design methodology. As a result, it is difficult to develop secure web applications in a consistent way from analysis to implementation. In this paper, we propose a consistent software development methodology from analysis to implementation of secure web applications. The proposed software development methodology for web application development uses UMLsec, a security-emphasized modeling language, and object-relational (O-R) mapping for relational database design. It also uses Java servlets and SQL to implement analysis and design results based on role-based access control (RBAC). The software development methodology for the secure web application proposed in this paper has been applied to the development of the online banking system, from the design stage of the user's requirements analysis to the implementation of the web application.
