1. This chapter includes major contributions to the SEI’s Software Assurance Competency Model from our collaborators Mark Ardis, Glenn Johnson, and Andrew Kornecki.
Table D.1 presents the CorBoK knowledge areas and second-level units, along with a description of the appropriate knowledge and skills for each competency level and the effectiveness attributes. Each level builds on the previous one: a designation of L1 applies to L1 through L5, a designation of L2 applies to L2 through L5, and so on. The level descriptions indicate the competency activities that are demonstrated at each level.
