Abstract : Our society's growing dependence on software makes the need for effective software assurance imperative. Motivation to address software assurance requires, at a minimum, an understanding of what to do, how to go about it, and why it is needed. Two key foundation elements are principles for software assurance and a curriculum to educate those who must address this need. This paper highlights efforts underway to address both of these elements.
