Software is the essential enabler for the new economy and for science. It creates new markets and new directions for a more reliable, flexible and robust society. It empowers the exploration of our world in ever more depth. However, software often falls short of our expectations. Current software methodologies, tools, and techniques remain expensive and not yet reliable enough for a highly changeable and evolutionary market. Many approaches have been proven only as case-by-case oriented methods. This book, as part of the SOMET series, presents new trends and theories in the direction in which we believe software science and engineering may develop to transform the role of software and science integration in tomorrow’s global information society. This book is an attempt to capture the essence on a new state of art in software science and its supporting technology. The book also aims at identifying the challenges such a technology has to master. One of the important issues addressed by this book is software development security tools and techniques.
