Re: Pentest Criteria

Pete,

with all due respect but don't you think you have abused the open source predicament long enough for something that 
will never be open nor free?
I know companies that got involved with v2, that invested in getting resources trained in v3, or the subset of it that 
was available at the moment of the trianing, and now have the 
outlook that they'll be pointing their customers to another ISO standard instead of an open source standard and. 

At the moment OSSTMM 3 does nothing but frustrate the heck out of people who invested time in either v2 or v3 based on 
idealism and empty promises.

Cheers,
Wim

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?

OSSTMM 3 does exactly that. Currently it's being reviewed to either include in the ISO27000 series or be its own ISO. 
It has operational security metrics which allow you to rate vulnerabilities on what they do and it works very very 
well for pen test.

Sincerely,
