The Security Design mission is an advanced mission for senior system architects who are ready to take on the lead system architect (LSA) role. The mission covers modules and topics required to design authentication services that verify the identity of operators and effective authorization schemes that ensure users can access only the application features and data that they are authorized to access.  This mission also discusses how to identify and address security vulnerabilities and how to design solutions that avoid common mistakes that can expose vulnerabilities in the system.
