Evaluating the Vulnerability and the Security of Public Organizations Websites in Jordan

Amer N. Abu Ali, Alaa K. Alnaimat and Haifa Y. Abu- Addose

Abstract:
In this study, we evaluate governmental agencies from a security perspective. In particular, we focus on assessing the vulnerability of those websites and their security weaknesses or holes. We use several selected metrics available for this purpose. As a result we show those websites strengths and weaknesses from the vulnerability viewpoint as well as classify those weaknesses or problem for their severity levels, hence classify those websites from their security levels from the most secure website to the least secure one. Finally, we provide recommendations on how some of those weaknesses can be reduced or eliminated.
