Our Mission Statement

The primary mission of the SwA SIG is to work with Platform and Domain Task Forces and other software industry entities and groups external to the OMG, to coordinate the establishment of a common framework for analysis and exchange of information related to software trustworthiness. To that end, the goal of the SwA SIG is to facilitate the development of a specification for a Software Assurance Framework that will:

  • Establish a common framework of software properties that can be used to represent any/all classes of software so software suppliers and acquirers can represent their claims and arguments(respectively), along with the corresponding evidence, employing automated tools (to address scale)
  • Verify that products have sufficiently satisfied these characteristics in advance of product acquisition, so that system engineers/integrators can use these products to build (compose) larger assured systems with them
  • Enable industry to improve visibility into the current status of software assurance during development of its software
  • Enable industry to develop automated tools that support the common framework

In this activity, the SwA SIG will:

  • Leverage other related OMG specifications such as KDM, SPEM, etc.
  • Promote the use of OMG specifications in the development of secure software
  • Find ways to leverage the various quality and maturity models for security with OMG specifications.
  • Identify scenarios where the Software Assurance Framework may be leveraged or applied to enhance software trustworthiness.
