The IT Security Staff presents: TUDa-CERT

The Computer Emergency Response Team of TU Darmstadt (TUDa-CERT) coordinates the processes in case of IT security incidents and misuse of it infrastructure. It is your contact concerning preventive measures and the concrete handling of IT security incidents.

Vulnerability scan

The continuous monitoring of IT security at the TU Darmstadt is also one of the tasks of the CERT. In particular, TUDa-CERT actively supports operators of IT systems at TU Darmstadt in securing their systems.

A vulnerability scanner based on Greenbone is in use since 2021. This is used to actively check existing IT systems at TU Darmstadt for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations at regular intervals. This is supplemented by various offers from external agencies, such as IT security scans from DFN-CERT.
