Re: The New ISO Hacking Standard


Should they choose to accept the OSSTMM, ISO will take the OSSTMM 3, rewrite it into ISO language, place the pieces in their other security standards as needed, or as a whole into 1 security testing standard (whichever they choose). What they charge for ISO documents is out of our control at that point.

Furthermore, they will not say anywhere that it is the OSSTMM on the document (something we disagree with but we will allow for the sake of standardization). However, ISECOM may say that the OSSTMM is ISO xyz.

In the meanwhile, ISECOM will continue to offer the OSSTMM and continue development with further versions. The typical ISO cycle is 7 years which by then they will absorb our future version and apply it again the same way. The OSSTMM will not suddenly cease to exist and development will continue. We will continue providing it as we always have and it will continue to be free.

Hi Pete,

	if this becomes an ISO standard will it still be available for free, or
will you need to pay to get copies of it like you do for other ISO
standards? Also, once the ISO standard is defined, how will new open
source contributions be incorporated?
