Vulnerability Assessment is the proactive examination of software in order to find vulnerabilities that may exist. While this work is no longer being carried out by EGI members work is continuing.
First Principles Vulnerability Assessment
Members of the University of Wisconsin / Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona Middleware Security and Testing Group have developed First Principles Vulnerability Assessment techniques for assessing software for vulnerabilities and carried out assessments of several major middleware systems, found significant vulnerabilities in many of them, then helped the developers with remediation strategies. Assessing further packages is planned.
