After three years of preparation, our SAMM project team has delivered version 2 of SAMM! OWASP SAMM (Software Assurance Maturity Model) is the OWASP framework to help organizations assess, formulate, and implement, through our self-assessment model, a strategy for software security they can integrate into their existing Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC). The new SAMM v2 consists of the following components: The SAMM Model overview and introduction, explaining the maturity model in detail A Quick-start Guide with different steps to improve your secure software practice An updated SAMM Toolbox to perform SAMM assessments and create SAMM roadmaps A new SAMM Benchmark initiative to compare your maturity and progress with other similar organizations and teams What’s changed with SAMM v2?

The original model (v1.0) was written by Pravir Chandra and dates back from 2009. Over the last 10 years, it has proven a widely distributed and effective model for improving secure software practices in different types of organisations throughout the world. Translations and supporting tools have been contributed by the community to facilitate adoption and alignment. With version 2.0, we further improve the model to deal with some of its current limitations.
