Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

12 Scopus citations


Web app developers often face challenges in using the many available security-testing frameworks, owing to those frameworks' inherent complexity and the lack of proper documentation. No up-to-date criteria exist that can help practitioners and organizations select an appropriate framework. Consequently, numerous vulnerabilities go undetected in the final product, creating a potential for major attacks. To help practitioners select the right framework, researchers classified 26 frameworks, using 27 criteria.
