Information system security management for the Holy Quran: an approach towards reliability of the Holy Quran online applications
MetadataShow full item record
The online Holy Quran is no longer scarce in the virtual world. Software developers have built many Holy Quran applications to satisfy the online users’ need. This is a healthy situation as it increases access of Holy Quran concurrently bridging the gap to making Holy Quran as human companion and savior. However, despite the availability of many online applications of the Holy Quran, control over the reliability of content built by the software developer has yet been rationalized. There is still no clear procedure and standard for the software developer or the software firm to refer to, thus become their source and basis of their development. Consequently, it is extremely difficult for users to ensure content validity of the Holy Quran application provided by these software developers. This study embarks to explore the applicability of the common security management standards which is the Systems Security Engineering Capability Maturity Model (SSECMM) to achieve reliability state of online application of the Holy Quran. This study also investigates the definition of common criteria and the security elements of the SSE-CMM. These findings will become part of the procedure involved in Holy Quran online application development. Finally, this study conducts the evaluation of the new definition of security elements by using selected Holy Quran application developer as the real case study. Findings of this research should be able to determine the security management model suitable for the online application development of the Holy Quran based on any development context.
