The presented paper discusses a possibility for an implementation of software reliability models for an evaluation of security of software. Mills model is proposed as the most suitable one. In order to use it more effectively it is proposed to implement a division of vulnerabilities into groups. Classification of vulnerabilities based on a method of their connection with features of a process's execution on a level of interaction of system resources and operating system is presented. Security of system in a context of a specific application can be evaluated more precisely by means of assigning of a certain weight to each group of vulnerabilities. The suggestions on an evaluation of vulnerability of software taking into account a division of vulnerabilities into groups according to the presented classification are made.
