Welcome to the XML Security Gateway Evaluation Criteria Project

This OWASP Project defines an open standard for evaluating XML Security Gateways. This criteria will provide the OWASP community a set of standard evaluation criteria to assess the functionality and quality of XML Security Gateways. The main driver for this project is to reduce the confusion and complexity in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of solutions in this the XML Security space, and enlightening the community as to the utility of XML Security Gateways to deliver a number of valuable security services.

Project Guiding Principles:

The XML Security Gateway Evaluation Criteria (XSGEC) Project’s Guiding Principles were created in order to express the intentions of its contributors when designing the criteria.

  • Create evaluation criteria supporting a transparent, level playing field for XML Security Gateway solutions to define their solution's key value proposition
  • Where practical, attempt to standardize nomenclature and metrics
  • Educate the community on the design considerations for XML security

Project Scope:

This project will focus on evaluation criteria for XML Security Gateways, that are commonly used in SOAP, Web services, SOA, and Rest applications.


The latest version of the XSGEC is here
