English abstract:
Current research on historical project data is rarely
touching on the subject of security related information. Learning
how security is treated in projects and which parts of a software
are historically security relevant or prone to security changes can
enhance the security strategy of a software project. We present
a mining methodology for security related changes by modifying
an existing method of software repository analysis. We use the
gathered security changes to find out more about the nature
of security in the FreeBSD project and we try to establish a
link between the identified security changes and a tracker for
security issues (security advisories). We give insights how security
is presented in the FreeBSD project and show how the mined
data and known security problems are connected.
