Contribution to Conference
In recent years numerous researchers have proposed a wide variety of approaches to incorporate security concerns into software design. Unfortunately a systematic literature review (SLR) providing a detailed overview of the state of the art and defining interesting research opportunities is lacking. This creates an extra barrier for (new) researchers to enter the domain and contribute to it. We describe a procedure for an SLR aimed at minimizing this barrier. By providing this procedure we first hope to receive feedback on it and trigger a discussion. Second, the availability of this procedure is useful when updating the SLR with approaches that will emerge after its initial performance.
