Abstract: In this paper, we lay down the agenda for a discipline that is meant to promote research on increasing the development of secure information systems. In particular, we introduce areas related to the development of secure information systems; we identify limitations of existing approaches and the barriers that currently limit research and we discuss the characteristics for an engineering discipline for the development of secure information systems, its principles and the challenges that must be addressed.
Keywords: information systems engineering; security engineering; secure information systems; security requirements; security integration; electronic security; e-security.
