Software Assurance Standard ( Baseline w/ CH 1 of 5/5/05)

This standard specifies the software assurance requirements for software developed or acquired and maintained by NASA and for open source software, Government off-the-shelf (GOTS) software, modified off-the-shelf (MOTS) software, and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software when included in a NASA system. This standard applies to use of new and existing (e.g., reuse, legacy, heritage) software products and components. This standard is compatible with all software life cycle models (e.g., waterfall, spiral, evolutionary, incremental, package-based), and addresses all software life cycle processes, including acquisition, supply, development, operation, and maintenance.
