Description
Smart Application Security Score Card is a decision-making tool for application/product owners to help determine the essential security assessments for their products/applications. Whilst ideally every application must undergo required security assessments, but not all types of applications are required to undergo all the commonly recommended (Design Review, Code Review, Penetration Testing, Post-Release Review) security assessments. There are situations where application owners do not have enough budget to get all the applications they own undergo all the recommended security assessments.

This tool is meant to aid application stakeholders in determining essential security assessments required for a particular product or application. Additionally, it also helps assign a score/weight for each recommended security assessment for the application which would help in prioritising the required security assessments.

Platform / OS

Tool Name
TA-Mapper (Application Penetration Testing Effort Estimator)
Release date

Description
Time and Attack Mapper (aka TA-Mapper) is an effort estimator tool for application penetration testing. This tool takes a scientific approach towards estimating efforts required for penetration testing for a particular application.

Efforts estimation done by most independent penetration testers or consulting companies are still done in a subjective way and there is no standardisation around it. TA-Mapper fills the gap by providing a scientific approach towards estimating efforts. This tool is able to calculate efforts with greater accuracy for application penetration testing.

This tool was originally written in 2004 to support some of my independent consulting assignments. I kept this tool private for a long time and made it public in 2009. It won't be wrong to say that during the time of the release of this tool, it was first of it's kind and is industry's first effort estimation tool for penetration testing.
