Tool Support for Automatically Identifying Effect Types of Security Requirements upon Functional Requirements

Bilal Al-Ahmad, Kenneth Magel, and Sameer Abufardeh
Abstract—Inter-requirements traceability refers to finding the relationships between requirements. Although considerable research has been dedicated to relate requirements with other requirements, less attention has been paid to relating security requirements with functional requirements by using a predefined detection approach. We present a tool, Detection Rules Constructor (DRC), which provides trace establishment to discover the relationships between security and functional requirements. The tool provides the following functions: (1) generation of all possible combinations between the tracing security and functional requirements by using syntactic parsing and domain ontology approaches, (2) automatically identifying the effect types of security requirements upon functional requirements by using user predefined detection rules. The proposed tool integrates the syntactic and semantic aspects in requirements traceability.

Index Terms—Detection rules constructor, domain ontology, functional requirements, security requirements.
