Define and describe Security Requirements Traceability Matrix (SRTM).

Security Requirements Traceability Matrix (SRTM) is a grid that supplies documentation and a straightforward presentation of the required elements for security of a system. It is vital to incorporate the best level of security in technical projects that require such. SRTM can be used for any type of project. Requirements and tests can be easily tracked in relationship to one another. SRTM assures accountability for all processes and completion of all work. An SRTM between security requirements and test activities have a grid, comparable to an Excel spreadsheet.

This spreadsheet contains a column for these items:

  • Requirement identification number
  • Description of the requirement
  • Source of the requirement
  • Objective of the test
  • Verification method for the test

Each row indicates a new requirement. An SRTM provides a simple way to review and compare the different requirements and tests appropriated for a specific security project.
