System-lock-screen.svg

WikiProject Computer Security is a collaboration of editors to work towards better coordination for Computer Security related articles. If you are interested, or are a computer security professional, please feel free to add your name to our list of participants.

Scope and Goals

WikiProject Computer Security is a collection of pages devoted to the management of computer security articles on Wikipedia. Articles that were under the scope of WikiProject Malware and Computer and Information Security Task Force have been transferred over. We aim to help set up standards of organization and presentation for articles on:

  • Articles dealing with Software Vulnerabilities and Exploitation (Viruses, Adware, Spyware, etc.)
  • Articles dealing with Software Security tools
  • Articles dealing with Information Security issues
  • Articles dealing with Managing Security (Assessment, Certification, Accreditation, etc.)
  • Articles dealing with Computer Security Legislation and Standards

Articles already in the computing wikiproject can be added to the computer security project by adding security=yes and security-importance= parameters to the computing banner template. For example:

{{WikiProject Computing|class=|importance=|security=yes|security-importance=}}

Assessment


Anyone can assess articles (regardless of membership to the WikiProject) by adding or editing the class and importance parameters to the {{WikiProject Computer Security}} template on the talk page of a tagged article. Assessments can be specifically requested (or the process discussed) on the Computer Security/Assessment page.

Project Articles


Quality scale

The quality scale is the WikiProject computing scale.

The B-Class criteria are: (1) referenced; (2) coverage; (3) structure; (4) grammar; (5) supporting materials; (6) accessible language.

Importance scale

Importance Criteria Examples
Top Core articles which are a "must have" for Wikiproject Computer Security.
High-traffic articles which many people outside of computer security will already have a good knowledge of.
Computer security, Computer insecurity, Firewall, Malware
High Most people interested in computer security will be familiar with the topic, and the article gives context to a number of other information security articles. Is mentioned by many books and academic papers, and discussed in detail in more than one. Port scanner, Bruce Schneier
Mid Known to many people interested in computer security, even if not in detail. Chaos Computer Club, Snort (software), Morris worm
Low More specific and specialized content known only to some people interested in computer security.
Most individuals, standards and software projects will be low importance unless they are well known or have high adoption.
CloudFlare, Datenschleuder
