Abstract—This paper discus the detailed research review on security quantification of object oriented software and put forth an effort to characterize design time software security. An effort through complexity perspective is to identify the involved factors of complexity and its probable impact with object oriented design parameters to quantify security. Complexity is taken as a key factor to software security quantification at early stage of development life cycle. A Security Assessment through Complexity (SAC) framework is proposed and relationship from design parameters to complexity and security is defined in accordance with its anticipated influence and importance.
Index Terms—Security, complexity attributes, OO design constructs, security quantification.
