"Software is essential to the operation of the Nation's critical infrastructure. Software vulnerabilities can jeopardize intellectual property, consumer trust, and business operations and services. In addition, a broad spectrum of critical applications and infrastructure, from process control systems to commercial application products, depends on secure, reliable software. [...] To ensure system reliability, integrity, and safety, it is critical that provisions be included for built-in security of the enabling software."
