Security has become an important topic for many software systems. Security patterns are reusable solutions to security problems. Although many security patterns and techniques for using them have been proposed, it is still difficult to adapt security patterns to each phase of software development This paper provides a survey of approaches to security patterns. As a result of classifying these approaches, a direction for the integration and future research topics is illustrated.
