Summary:
As a compamon and complement to the work being done to build a secure systems methodology, this thesis evaluates the use of Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) in support of the methodology's lifecycle. The development lifecycle illustrated follows the recommendations of this secure systems methodology, while using MDA models to represent requirements, analysis, design, and implementation information. In order to evaluate MDA, we analyze a well-understood distributed systems security problem, remote access, as illustrated by the internet "secure shell" protocol, ssh. By observing the ability of MDA models and transformations to specify remote access in each lifecycle phase, MDA's strengths and weaknesses can be evaluated in this context. A further aim of this work is to extract concepts that can be contained in an MDA security metamodel for use in future projects.
