A toolset developed over the course of over 30 years of continuous IT and business work.

The program is a multi-part program that an enterprise can subscribe to in order to achieve maximum optimization. For each category an dashboard often referred to as a score card or report card of the enterprise is published on our website with a specific URL for the enterprise under review.
This guarantees an updated and independent unalterable report card is available for our client to show their clients. Each report card section includes the date performed along with any comments on the findings. The report card also includes the contact information of the security analysts who performed the various tests. To be considered a penetration test or intrusion test at no point can the enterprise influence what is being tested.
Intrusion testing initiatives are performed annually however some tests will be performed more frequently example: password quality review test, phishing test, etc. CVA - Continuous Vulnerability Assessment Enterprise vulnerability testing is an important part of any secure infrastructure.
Under this category, tests are configured both internally and externally to be executed monthly providing technical staff with the details required to address critical issues and providing management with trending information to gauge the evolution. The CVA goes beyond simple VA Vulnerability Assessment and includes configuration testing to identify non hardened systems and provide optimization recommendations based on known hardening configuration standards.
EMA - Enterprise Maturity Assessment Inspired by ISO and NIST , the EVA maturity assessment provides management with a score card of strengths and weaknesses grouped by themes that allow an enterprise to target weak areas that are meaningful for them and invest effort in areas that will yield the most dividends.
Conclusion As you read this, keep in mind that each of the Key Concepts I discussed spans multiple pages and chapters within the OSSTMM v 3 and the above commentary is only meant to introduce the concepts that are very clearly defined in the manual itself.
I myself am very exited about this new version and as opposed to picking and choosing portions I like and use this new version is a really comprehensive approach that we are already applying in our client engagements.
In coming articles, I will discuss the OpSec metrics, controls, and other specific formulas and methods in more detail, and hope to do a decent job of summarizing the "gist" of the OSSTMM.

You should also point out that this approach might be useful; but until it is reviewed by a wider audience it is still speculation. Additionally, how many years has it been coming? Again, Thanks for the article. Amine Mehablia Thank you for the article. Do you have any case study to share it with us, if possible.
The one thing that immediately sticks out at me is the sheer size of the thing. The v. As a newbie, it is a daunting task to try and go through and understand it without spending a few days. Fred Williams Thanks Mike! Also to get a broader audience, you need to have a simpler abstraction like you have done earlier with the 'light' release , would think about like the 'Prioritized Approach for PCI DSS' - simple to understand the initial message to proceed further.
Unfortunatley the subscription is to expensive yes, I can imagine how much intellectual property is in there!!
The Dude Thanks MM, look forward for v3! One last comment: A lot of it is new research that does take quite a turn from what's being done now in security. So the parallel isn't really there.
And if you can't pay the subscription cost now, you can just contribute to any of the ISECOM projects and get access to it. Yendri Fernando nice article, Michael can i ask some question, 1. Should we choose one of the five channels? In my case i choose the Data Network Channel and ignore others channel.
Should we finish all modules and all tasks? I determine "Defining a Security Test" on early of my research.. I hope Pete can answer it too as a founder.. However be aware that the type of test may differ in your region from others so your pen test may require some parts of Human Security testing and some from Wireless too. Your vuln scanning may only require part of Data Networks testing.
No, you can finish them all for thoroughness but it's not required. You just need to make sure that if you do fill out a STAR that those areas are left as "not tested" or "out of scope". Hope that helps!
Yendri Fernando Thanks for the answer Pete. So, I choose double blind black box test type, can i ignore some task because the task required white box pen test? Pete Herzog Yendri, yes, but you need to keep track of what you ignore. This allows for future report comparisons and protects you in cases of compliance failure. Second, what about if i ignore integrity, non-repudiation module? Must i fill it 0? Pete Herzog Yendri, write me offline at pete -at- isecom.
