Time and Attack Mapper (TA-Mapper)

Time and Attack Mapper (alternatively known as TA-Mapper) is an effort estimator tool for blackbox security assessment (or Penetration Testing) of applications. This tool provides more accurate estimation when compared to rough estimation. Penetration testers who always has hard time explaining/justifying the efforts charged (or quoted) to their customers can find this tool handy by able to calculate efforts with greater accuracy required for application penetration testing. In addition, this tool helps application pen-testers in itemizing their penetration testing efforts into micro-level and provides more clarity of their pen-testing activities. In future I have plans to extend this tool ability to generate test cases.
