We grow increasingly dependent on the appropriate operation of computer-based systems. One aspect of such systems is security. As systems become more complex current means of analysis will probably prove ineffective. In the safety domain a variety of analysis techniques has emerged over many years. These have proved surprisingly effective. Since the safety and security domains share many similarities, various authors have suggested that safety techniques might usefully find application in security. This report takes one such technique, HAZOPs, and applies it to one widely used informal design component – UML’s use cases.
