Abstract: Over the years, the focus has been on protecting network, host, database and standard applications from internal and external threats. The Rapid Application Development (RAD) process makes the web application extremely short and makes it difficult to eliminate the vulnerabilities. Here we study web application risk assessment technique called threat risk modeling to improve the security of the application. We implement our proposed mechanism the application risk assessment using Microsoft’s threat risk DREAD model to evaluate the application security risk against vulnerability parameters. The study led to quantifying different levels of risk for Geospatial Weather Information System (GWIS) using DREAD model.
