On the Website of the VDA (Verband der Automobilindustrie) verinice is described as a tool for simplified answering of the so-called "Information Security Assessment" (VDA ISA). The ISA is a questionnaire on information security with an integrated process maturity model, which was integrated into verinice in cooperation with the corresponding working group of the VDA.

In a contribution to the IT Conference 2010 of the DIIR, Senior Expert Sascha Brock describes how the quality and security of web applications at Deutsche Post DHL is ensured by internal revision through process-oriented auditing over the entire life cycle. In doing so, he also discusses verinice as a suitable tool for supporting the audit approach described.

The new version 1.2.3 of verinice is now available in the download area.

The added features and improvements are:

  • Possibility of user account import out of the Active Directory

  • Usage of user account management in every perspective 

  • Results of the "Information Security Assessments" can be shown in the tree structure
