Porbably SANS. But I am not very sure if that really fits into "best
practice which lends itself to pentests" thing. If you are looking at
classification of the vulnerabilities than OWASP and WASC are ready
references.

Hey guys,

Another question for you. Usually when we do pentests for our clients we
report our findings and recommendations. We've never had to report the
criteria  our findings/vulnerabilities are based on as well. By criteria
I mean industry standards or best practices, e.g., NIST 800_53, CoBIT,
etc.

What if a client wants criteria reported as well. I'm not sure if there
is one I can use without running the risk of it being too far removed.
Is there a frame work or best practice which lends itself to pentests?
Or do I have to try to layer NIST on top of it

Thoughts?

Thanks guys.
