Focus on CCWAPSS Web Application Scoring Scale Version 1.0
A friend of mine Frederic Charpentier (senior security consultant) developed a good new web application scoring scale called CCWAPSS. CCWAPSS stands for Common Criteria Web Application Security and it aims to share a common evaluation method for web application security assessments/pentests between security auditors and final customers.
Key benefits of CCWAPSS framework :
- Fighting against the Â« gaussienne Â» inclination using a restricted granularity that forces the auditor to clear-cut score (there is no medium choice).
- Offering a solution to interpretation problems between different auditors by providing clear and well documented criteria.
- The maximum score (10/10) means â€œcompliant with Best Practicesâ€ . This score could be exceeded in case of excellence (like a medical vision evaluation such as 12/10).
- Each criteria is relative to section of the OWASP Guide 3.0.
