Does Atlassian's Confluence security implementation comply with any IT Security implementation standard?

Our client wants to know if Confluence Security (http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF35/Confluence+Security) complies with security standards as expected and applied in the IT industry (i.e. ISO 27002, ITU).

Hi,

Generally Confluence is just an application that relies on various environmental features, thus compliance itself can only be guaranteed if the implementation and the environment is up to those standards. Even the components that are shipped with Confluence installer (Tomcat, JDK/JRE) has to be kept up-to-date, this is why Confluence as an application can only comply with standards if all the circumstances are met.

I understand that this can be problematic, but one feature of Confluence is that it can be implemented in various environments, but for those always the administrators are responsible, so such compliance can be verified for each environment as a whole by an audit.

Regards,

Peter
