Is there any good open source software for Security Risk Analysis?

for example something like one explained on : http://www.security-risk-analysis.com/introduction.htm

    I'm sorry, it is not clear what you are asking. I think it has lost something in translation. You might try editing the question. Jun 14, 2012 at 8:57

    That's much clearer, thanks. Next question: what sort of risk analysis methodology do you use? There are many different approaches, and each one has different requirements. Jun 14, 2012 at 14:10

No. Security risk analysis requires intelligence, understanding of security concepts, knowledge of the application domain, and experience with security. It's not something you can automate with a tool. There is no substitute for having an experienced security expert understand your application domain and perform a security risk analysis.

(Of course, there may be opportunities for a security expert to use tools to help him/her with the analysis. But the tool is not a replacement for a human expert. A tool cannot perform a security risk analysis on its own.)


As risk analysis and threat modeling are closely related IMO, I think you should give Threat Modeler a try. Free and works great for me :)
