In addition to what AdamT has mentioned, fix your
scope and requirement before settling for the details.

More importantly why you want to do that assessment?
Compliance? You need to understand the requirement of
carrying out such task because if you are the one who
conduct the assessment, it may not be a valid test
because you are not the independant party. 

As for tools to carry such assessment, there are some
commercial tools available to recommend but it all
depend on the features you want. Human effort is
needed in the case of source code review and some
customised script testing. No single tools will do the
100% jobs. Thus certain skill sets are needed to
conduct such testing.

Hope this helps.
