Network security testing
The GWDG offers the service “Security tests of a network for data transmission”. The service includes vulnerability scans of networks, subnets or individual computers. A vulnerability scan checks devices that can be reached via the network by using special software (vulnerability scanner) via the network to test for vulnerabilities such as outdated software versions or insecure configurations of the visible services.
As a result, an analysis of the review including suggestions for improvement is provided and discussed if necessary.
The review is carried out in close coordination with the persons responsible.
The assignment must be made by the management of the facility whose network is to be checked. The request must be made using the application form for the safety check.
