Information security requirements are important in all software engineering projects, not only to ensure the correct level of security in the end product but also to avoid implementing security solutions that turn out to be a bad fit. This article compares methods for eliciting and describing security requirements in software development projects, from the viewpoint of developers without extensive security skills. As the authors argue, all software projects need a well-balanced amount of security awareness from the beginning. This article is part of a special issue on Security of the Rest of Us.
