Announcement : CCWAPSS methodology release 1.1

Greetings FD,

I'm pleased to announce the release of the latest version of the Common Criteria Web Application Security Scoring : CCWAPSS v1.1.

This update clarifies the rating process when rating multiple flaws associated to the same criteria.


CCWAPSS is a comprehensive security scoring methodolody dedicated to web application pentests. This scale aims at sharing a common, open and documented evaluation methodology between security auditors and final customers.

Key benefits of CCWAPSS
- Offering a solution to interpretation problems between different auditors by providing clear and 11 well documented criteria. - Fighting against the « gaussienne » inclination using a restricted granularity that forces the auditor to clear-cut score (there is no medium choice). - The maximum score (10/10) means “compliant with Best Practices”. 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.

The CCWAPSS v1.1 whitepaper is available in PDF format at http://ccwapss.blogspot.com/ .

Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

Regards, Fred.
