STRIDE-per-Something Methodology

To get started with STRIDE, one can think about all the element or all the interaction between components.

STRIDE-per-element is good for beginners, but STRIDE-per-interaction makes it easier to understand threats.


Different threats affect each type of element:

  • External Entity
  • Process
  • Data Store
  • Dataflow


Focus shift from individual elements to the interactions between elements, then concentrate on where those components “meet”.
