Conducting Threat Modeling

  • Identify Assets: Identify the assets within the system that need to be protected, such as sensitive data, critical functions, or key resources.
  • Identify Threats: Use the STRIDE framework to systematically analyze each component of the system and identify potential threats associated with spoofing, tampering, repudiation, information disclosure, denial of service, and elevation of privilege.
  • Assess Risks: Evaluate the likelihood and potential impact of each identified threat on the security and functionality of the system. Prioritize threats based on their severity and the potential consequences they pose.
  • Mitigate Threats: Develop and implement appropriate countermeasures and security controls to mitigate or eliminate identified threats. This may involve implementing access controls, encryption, input validation, error handling mechanisms, and other security best practices.
  • Validate and Iterate: Validate the effectiveness of the implemented security controls through testing, validation, and ongoing monitoring. Continuously review and update the threat model to account for changes in the system, emerging threats, or evolving security requirements.

  • Group Activities

Workshop 1: Threat Modeling with STRIDE

  • Spoofing: This involves an attacker impersonating a legitimate user or system entity to gain unauthorized access or privileges. Examples include masquerading as an authenticated user or spoofing network addresses to bypass security controls.
  • Tampering: Tampering threats involve unauthorized modification or alteration of data, code, or system configurations. Attackers may attempt to tamper with sensitive information, manipulate application logic, or modify system settings to achieve their objectives.
  • Repudiation: Repudiation threats occur when an attacker denies their actions or involvement in a security incident. This can include actions such as deleting or modifying logs, transactions, or audit trails to conceal unauthorized activities
  • Information Disclosure: Information disclosure threats involve the unauthorized exposure or leakage of sensitive data. Attackers may exploit vulnerabilities to access confidential information such as personal data, intellectual property, or proprietary business information.
  • Denial of Service (DoS): Denial of service threats aim to disrupt or degrade the availability of a system or service, making it inaccessible to legitimate users. Attackers may launch DoS attacks to overwhelm resources, exhaust network bandwidth, or exploit software vulnerabilities to crash systems.
  • Elevation of Privilege: Elevation of privilege threats involves attackers gaining unauthorized access to higher levels of privileges or permissions than they are entitled to. This can enable attackers to perform actions or access resources beyond their authorized scope, potentially leading to further exploitation or compromise.
