We’re proud to announce the release of the next version of ironvas. The new features of ironvas in version 0.1.0 are:

  • dynamically configure and run OpenVAS via subscriptions within ironvas (ironvas will create new targets and tasks for new devices, when <request-for-investigation> is attached to them by a configured PDP)
  • define filter in JavaScript to limit the vulnerabilities that will be published by ironvas (i.e. depending on risk level, or on substrings of the name of the NVE, …)

ironvas can be downloaded from our Download section. We have also created a new video at our Youtube-channel, showing the new features of ironvas 0.1.0

Android Usage Study

How do we use our beloved smartphones? To answer this question, the Trust@FHH group has developed the FHH Device Analyzer app for Android. The purpose is to collect both static and dynamic data on Android based smartphones. We aim to use this data to train an Intrusion Detection System that is currently in development.
