Issue No. 01 - January/February (2003 vol. 20)
<p>A misuse case is the negative form of a use case; it documents a negative scenario. Its actor is an agent with hostile intent toward the system under design. The relationships between use and misuse cases document threats and their mitigations. Use- and misuse-case diagrams (shown in the article) are valuable in threat and hazard analysis, system design, eliciting requirements, and generating test cases.</p>
