The SOAR also describes the variety of techniques and technologies in use in government, industry, and academia for specifying, acquiring, producing, assessing, and deploying software that can, with a justifiable degree of confidence, be said to be secure. Finally, the SOAR presents observations about noteworthy trends in software security assurance as a discipline.
