Thirty years ago security products were a lot more basic, scanning 1000s of files to determine their effectiveness may have been enough. Security products are now developed with a range of different approaches. A simple scaner may be enough to determine the effectiveness of one layer of security or it may not even be applicable to some products. This database has been created with the aim to shine a light on the complexity of security product testing.
SecTestDB has been created by the team at SE Labs with the goal of information sharing. Currently, the two main areas of focus are the Real World Protection Testing (Endpoint Protection Testing) and APT-style testing (Breach Response Testing). There is also a detailed breakdown on the use of various open source tools used throughout the cyber security testing process.
Further areas of interest are currently being documented and will be uploaded to the database in due course (see roadmap below).
The current content is focused on the tests performed at SE Labs and we encourage security professionals from different backgrounds to refer to this database in their own work and contribute content & ideas to further develop the database.
Due to the potentially sensitive nature of the security materials contained within, full access to the database is currently protected from the general internet.
