      The Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) is the software security assurance process created by Microsoft and used at Microsoft to develop more secure software. The first version of the SDL, which focused heavily on client/server applications, dates back to 2002. Later versions of the SDL have expanded their scope to include teams who are designing and building Web applications. The Windows Live™ team adopted many of the newer Web-focused requirements of the SDL before these requirements were incorporated into the SDL. This paper summarizes these new features, describes the process that the Windows Live team followed to roll out the SDL, and captures some of the lessons that they learned along the way. This paper also describes how the use of SDL by the Windows Live team has evolved, starting with Windows Live Wave 2, through Windows Live Wave 3, and on to the upcoming release, Windows Live Wave 4.
