The OSSTMM is not a Standard that many would think. It is a methodology that takes into account all the standards that you must comply with and creates a new customized standard for your organization.

A friend of mine wrote a whitepaper on the OSSTMM and how to use it to find your company's Perfect Security Standard. You can find it at:


I submit this for your review.

Can I ask what people think of the OSST and the Methodology laid down in the OSSTM Manual?

Another question, especially for those UK residents - how well respected is the OSST Methodology?

I am thinking of including this in our standard internal dest practice set.

We aleady use the HMG InfoSec Standards 1 & 3 and CRAMM for Risk Assessment, the ITIL Security Model for Security Change & Incident Management but we are currently lacking when it comes to a decent Testing Standard.
