Q

Are there application security certification standards?

While the Common Criteria Web Application Security Scoring method is available, there really aren't any application security certification standards that are widely accepted.

Are there any standards against which applications can get certified for security -- something on the lines of Common Criteria?
There is none that I know of that is widely accepted. Although there is the Common Criteria Web Application Security Scoring (CCWAPSS) method. Although I don't think this initiative has really gotten any pickup yet.
