Areas of work

We work in following large areas:

Reactive work

Thats what you see as security updates. We monitor mailinglist, coordinate between vendors, check software releases, and receive reports and drive the security update process of the openSUSE and SUSE Linux based products during their lifetime.

This is summarized on the page incident handling.

  • Our SUSE Linux Enterprise security page can be found at https://www.suse.com/security/
  • If you want to report an incident, mail security@suse.de
  • Our GPG key is on the website above, every CD 1 and on the keyservers. (new key ID: 0xB205E69BAB2FD922, old key ID: 0x21FE92322BA9E067)

Proactive work

We regularly check packages contained in our Linux distributions. We focus on security critical packages, network daemons, setuid programs and similar. We also work on the Security Features.

We also try to replace security critical daemons or setuid binaries by technologies less prone to attacks.

Please see our policy on details how and when we disclose security issues found by us.

Research

We research security related technologies.
