Simplified implementation of the Microsoft SDL

Microsoft has announced a new 17-page whitepaper that presents a simplified version of their Security Development Lifecycle (SDL). From the announcement

One of the common misconceptions about the Microsoft SDL is that you have to be an organization the size of Microsoft in order to be able to implement it. Another misconception is that the SDL is only appropriate for Microsoft languages and Microsoft platforms, and that you need to use some other methodology if you’re writing code with Ruby for OS X. The Simplified SDL white paper helps address these misconceptions by explaining how the SDL can be implemented with limited resources and applied to any platform.
