This tutorial provides a detailed introduction to System Security Engineering (SSE) based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Special Publication 800-160 Vol 1, Systems Security Engineering. A holistic approach to integrating security engineering considerations throughout the entire system development life cycle is presented and demonstrated. Part I of the tutorial explains foundational SSE concepts and focuses on identifying, understanding, and managing stakeholder security concerns in complex systems of interest. Part II of the tutorial focuses on understanding and applying the NIST SSE processes, activities, and tasks, as well as, design principles for securing different types and classes of systems.
