In this paper, we describe the work of the Master of Software Assurancecurriculum project. This includes our sources, process, products, adoption strategies, and early adoption experiences. Theproject used research results, prior curricula, and documented bodies of knowledge to develop a new curriculum. We arenow working with early adopters and employing a number of transition mechanisms as part of our strategy to furtheradoption in this critical area.
