SecQua is an open source project written in Python, that tries to quantify the security of a given Information System, using a novel security metric, trying to provide a deterministic, unbiased, objective and efficient measurement. The approach is vulnerability driven and in order to get as much unbiased results, it makes use of the National Vulnerability Database.
This work is mainly based on the following publications:
*C. Patsakis, Gregory Chondrocoukis, D. Mermigas, S. Pirounias, The role of weighted entropy in security quantification, International Conference On Information Security And Artificial Intelligence (ISAI 2010), December 17-19, 2010, Chengdu, China.
*C. Patsakis, D. Mermigas, S. Pirounias, N. Alexandris, E. Fountas, Towards a formalistic measuring of security using stochastic calculus, 3rd IEEE International Conference on Computer Science and Information Technology (ICCSIT 2010), Chengu, China, 9-11 July 2010.
