Software Vulnerability Group (SVG) view and responsibilities concerning issue handling

The vulnerability issue handling process is mostly carried out by the SVG Risk Assessment Team or RAT.

Setup and maintain infrastructure

It is the SVG's responsibility to setup and maintain the infrastructure needed to carry out the software vulnerability issue handling. This includes the mailing list for resporting issues, mailing list for the RAT to investigate and assess issues, this wiki and the mechanism for distributing advisories. (Note that these will be on sites hosted by EGI). It also involves ensuring that contact details for various software providers are at hand and readily available.

Provide a rota for working days

SVG will try and ensure that at least 1 RAT member is available on all working days. Note that the SVG does not guarantee cover on all working days, but aims to do so.

Handle potential vulnerabilities reported

Issues will be handled according to the OMB approved Software Vulnerability Group issue handling process EGI Software Vulnerability Issue Handling Process

This includes:

Provide advice where needed on the resolution of vulnerabilities

It is not an SVG function to fix vulnerabilities, but SVG will try and provide help and advice on how to eliminate vulnerabilities if it is needed.
