This study proposes the best set of criteria for evaluating a secure framework that are to support eCommerce with security requirements analysis and elicitation, based upon the construction of a context for the system and satisfaction arguments for the security of the system. The novel contribution of this paper is an information security framework hail as the secure framework, comprising of technical, operational, business, process and maturity models to address information security requirements for eCommerce transactions.
