Goal of this challenge is to assess a critical part of the eduGAIN communication infrastructure available to the eduGAIN security team. In this first round the security contact addresses of Participants (see below) were tested. The security contacts email addresses were retrieved from the eduGAIN Database using the APIs published on the technical site. The procedure used to retrieve the email addresses is available on the GEANT gitlab:


Besides the validity of the available contact addresses also the reaction time was measured. This information was collected to be used as input for a later discussion on response times. The community would need to define target reaction times, which are regarded to be useful to be used in security incident coordination situations.


Validity of the contact addresses


The participants that have not reacted to the challenge mail will be contacted by eduGAIN support via alternative channels and a solution for the communication issues will be implemented and tested.
