Welcome to the Application Security Metrics Security Project

This OWASP Project will first identify and provide the OWASP community a set of application security metrics that have been found by contributors to be effective in measuring application security. This will be followed by the development of new metrics that build on the initial metrics foundation to fulfill unmet metrics requirements. The goals of this Project are to make a baseline set of application security metrics available to the OWASP community and subsequently to provide a forum for the community to contribute metrics back into the baseline.

Project Guiding Principles:

The Application Security Metrics Security Project Project’s Guiding Principles were created in order to express the intentions of its contributors when designing application security metrics.

  • Effective security metrics have proven to be challenging to develop. As such, provide a means for the OWASP community to initially leverage what others have developed and find useful (i.e., provide the OWASP community useful metrics in use today).
  • Where practical, attempt to “standardize” nomenclature with other security metrics initiatives such as, Systems Security Engineering Capability Maturity Model (SSE-CMM), etc.
  • In selecting best practice metrics, make use of high-level filters. For example, use Dr. Dan Geer’s decision support mantra regarding security metrics: “How would that proposed measure advance appropriate decision making?"
  • Link each metric to the business driver for the metric (e.g., Metric “X” helps support regulatory compliance and risk management objectives.”

Comments to the editor or endorsements are welcome.

Project Scope:

In keeping with OWASP’s mission, this project will focus primarily on application security metrics. Below are some resources with information on application security metrics.
