@@ -33,6 +33,10 @@ Each project's security assessment shall include a description of:

Due to the nature and timeframe for the analysis, *this review is not meant to subsume the need for a professional security audit of the code*. Audits of implementation-specific vulnerabilities, improper deployment configuration, etc. are not in scope of a security assessment. A security assessmet is intended to uncover design and configuration flaws and to obtain a clear, comprehensive articulation of the project's design goals and aspirations while documenting the intended security properties enforced, fulfilled, or executed by said project.

Finalized assessments may be used by the community to assist in contextual evaluation of a project but are not an endorsement of the security of the project, not a security audit of the project, and do not relieve an individual or organization from performing due diligence and complying with laws, regulations, and policies.

Draft assessments contain *unconfirmed* content and are not endorsed as factual until committed to this repository, which requires detailed peer review. Draft assessments may also contain *speculative* content as the project lead or security reviewer is performing an evaluation. Draft assessments are *only* for the purpose of preparing final assessment and are **not** to be used in any other capacity by the community.

## Process

The security assessment is a collaborative process for the benefit of the project and the community, where the primary content is generated by the [project lead](guide/ and revised based on feedback from [security reviewers](guide/ and other members of the SIG.
