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:
