Today we’re proud to announce the release of a new IF-MAP client: ironvas. ironvas is an IF-MAP 2.0 client that can publish vulnerability reports generated by OpenVAS to an IF-MAP server. It is written in Java and Scala. Future versions will provide subscribe functionality (trigger OpenVAS via IF-MAP) and the possibility to filter vulnerabilites, depending on their risk factor. Further information about installation and usage can be found in our Redmine and the Readme-file within the distribution packages. You can find the current version in the download section.

VisITMeta, a new research project has started

We’re proud to announce the start of a new research project within our Trust@FHH group: VisITMeta

VisITMeta stands for “Visualizing the security of modern IT infrastructures based on metadata” - or “Visualisierung der Sicherheit moderner IT-Infrastrukturen auf der Basis von Metadaten” as its original german title. It will be based on our experience with irongui, our tool to visualizie IF-MAP metadata of any IF-MAP server, and will enhance its functionality with more sophisticated features for handling and rendering large metadata graphs, including history functionality.

The project is funded by the german Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF, FKZ17PNT032) and has started on April 1st, 2012.

Information can be found within this website’s project section, which will be updated throughout the next 3 years.
