Introduction of OSSTMM
The OSSTMM is a collaborative, apolitical, open and non-profit scientific research project. It aims at building an authoritative standard methodology for security metrics and security testing. It is a security testing manual that analyses verified facts. With these facts you can have actionable information ideal for enhancing IT security of your operations.

- Introduction to OSSTMM and ISECOM
OSSTMM primarily aims at providing a scientific approach for precise security characterization. It occurs through correlation as well as examination, and that too consistently and unswervingly.
The framework adapts to a majority of penetration tests, security assessments, red-teaming, war games, IS audits, vulnerability assessments, posture assessments, security audits, blue-teaming and ethical hacking.
As a secondary aim, OSSTMM offers a set of strategies which enables an auditor to execute a licensed OSSTMM audit. The crucial aim of OSSTMM is to make a mark in a security testing methodology. When such a methodology is utilized; practical, operational and factual security requirements should be met as a direct result. As an indirect result, a discipline is created to act as a focal point for all security tests, irrespective of organization size, technology or security level.
Bringing ISECOM to spotlight, it is worth mentioning that they take care of this manual, offer professional certifications to network security analysts (OPSA), network security testers (OPST) along with wireless security analysts. As professional security analysts and testers need to prove their efficiency, this certification helps them establish precision, and apply formal methodology and verification to fetch factual results. Therefore, OSSTMM certification holders are better employed within no time as compared to those who have some other penetration testing certifications. The OSSTMM approach is easy and lucid to aid fact finding. It is also used to analyze business processes if they have any loopholes where money laundering, fraud and other security threats may be lurking.
- OSSTMM Test Type
Test cases of OSSTMM are divided into five channels that jointly test – awareness levels of security professionals, information and data controls, telecommunications and computer networks, mobile devices, security processes, social engineering and fraud control levels, wireless devices, physical security access controls and physical locations; for instance perimeters, military bases and buildings. Technical details of an item which is to be tested, steps to follow before a security test, through and after it, and the approach to determine the results are covered by OSSTMM. New tests that are meant for international standards, best practices, regulations, ethical concerns and laws are added and updated on regular basis.
