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.

A responsible disclosure can be reported using the email address: responsible-disclosure@utwente.nl.
Reports need to be clear and contain the steps necessary to reproduce the vulnerability. The steps need to be in the text of the message. Even though images, movies and other files may add to the clarification, they are routinely not opened because of security concerns regarding unsolicited attachments and links.

It may take up to five business days for us to analyze a report and find it of sufficient quality. It makes no sense to inquire about progress earlier.

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

Out of scope

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 will be forwarded, if possible. to the responsible persons. These reports do not result in an entry in the Hall of Fame and no updates on progress are provided.

Also out of scope are trivial vulnerabilities or bugs that cannot be abused. The following is a non-exhaustive list of examples of these vulnerabilities:

Also, reports that can be considered a beg bounty will not be processed nor responded to.
