Cyber Safety

Responsible disclosure

Despite our security efforts a weakness could occur in one of our systems. If you have detected a vulnerability, please let us know. Then we can take the necessary measures as soon as possible, working together with you in an ongoing effort to keep our systems secure.

The Responsible disclosure procedure describes how to report a detected vulnerability.

We accept reports of real vulnerabilities in applications and / or systems. Cases such as the lack of RRs (SPF, CAA and the like) and security headers in websites (HSTS, Content-Security-Policy and the like) are not considered reports. These cases are known to us and are already being worked on.

The network of the University of Twente offers internet access for students, associations and starting companies hosting their websites. Although these sites are on the university's network, they are not the responsibility of the university. Responsible disclosure notifications about these sites are accepted. The reports are forwarded to the responsible persons, but then closed by the university. These reports do not result in an entry in the Hall of Fame and no updates on progress are provided.  

A responsible disclosure can be reported using the relevant email address: responsible-disclosure@utwente.nl.

We want to thank everybody who reported a vulnerability in a responsible way in our Hall of Fame.
