Due to the current Corona developments, the organising team has decided to hold the verinice.XP 2022 as an online event. Participation in the digital conference on 23 & 24 February 2022 is free of charge. Registration is possible at https://verinicexp.org . The programme will be published at the end of 2021.

Presentation proposals can also be submitted until 17 December at https://verinicexp.org or by email to cfp@remove-this.verinicexp.org.

Workshops on various verinice topics are also planned for the day before the conference (Tuesday, 22 February 2022). We will inform you about the workshop programme shortly. Participation is possible independently of verinice.XP.


Last week, a critical vulnerability in the widely used logging library log4j 2 became known. The log4j versions included in the verinice.PRO server are not affected by the vulnerability!

The vulnerability is described in this article, among others: Log4Shell: RCE 0-day exploit found in log4j 2, a popular Java logging package and has the CVS number CVE-2021-44228 erhalten.

For more information, see the article in our verinice forum: https://forum.verinice.com/t/verinice-nicht-betroffen-von-log4j-schwachstelle/

However, on a verinice.PRO system there may be other Java applications in Tomcat that have not been installed by the verinice team. Since these applications may contain affected log4j versions, the team recommends including a parameter in the Tomcat configuration that prevents exploitation of the vulnerability in other applications. Again, see our forum post for details: https://forum.verinice.com/t/verinice-nicht-betroffen-von-log4j-schwachstelle/

Feel free to contact our team if you have any further questions.

About verinice.XP

For years, verinice.XP has been bringing together IT decision-makers, security managers and data protection officers from companies, institutions and public authorities. They are all united by their use of verinice  for information security management or data protection management. A social event is expected to take place on the evening of February 22, 2021 at the conference hotel. About the details - especially taking into account the then valid Corona requirements - we will inform them yet.

Version 1.23.1 of verinice is now available for download in the verinice.SHOP.

This update for verinice fixes an error when copying objects. In the single-user version of verinice 1.22.2 and 1.23, the function "Copy with links" could not be executed. Calling up the function is possible again in version 1.23.1.

verinice.PRO was not affected by the error. In the operating mode "Server", the function "Copy with links" can also be executed without errors in older versions. Therefore, no new verinice.PRO packages for 1.23.1 are published in the customer repository. On the server, the packages for 1.23.0 can still be used.

Please refer to the detailed release notes of version 1.23.x. for all further information.


verinice 1.23 Release

From now on verinice and verinice.PRO version 1.23 are available for  download in verinice.SHOP or in customer repository respectively. The verinice.TEAM delivers with verinice 1.23 more than 30 new features, detail changes and bug fixes. These are described in detail in the release notes.

Among other things, verinice 1.23 now uses Java 11, and the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) from Adoptium (formerly AdoptOpenJDK) shipped with the client has been updated to the latest version. For this, update notes are listed in the release notes and must be followed.

To support newer operating systems, the RCP framework has been updated to version 2021-06 (4.20). verinice thus offers better support for the macOS Big Sur operating system in particular.

If you have any questions or need help with the update, feel free to contact us - including by email at verinice@remove-this.sernet.de. You are also welcome to exchange ideas with other users and the verinice team in the Forum (mainly German).

Secianus will publish the details of the vulnerability shortly, so that verinice users have enough time to update. If you need help with this or have any open questions, please feel free to contact us at sales@remove-this.sernet.de.


As of now, the verinice.TEAM provides the BSI published Benutzerdefinierte Bausteine for use in verinice free of charge. They can be ordered and downloaded from the verinice.SHOP

Users of IT-Grundschutz have the opportunity to contribute their expertise to IT-Grundschutz by creating so-called Benutzerdefinierte Bausteine (user defined building block). To do this, an institution picks out a topic or partial aspect for which no IT-Grundschutz building block has yet been published and on which it would like to work. Those responsible for information security can put their experience and work results, such as security assessments of threats and requirements, into the form of a building block. This user defined building block can then be published on the IT-Grundschutz website. Companies that want to address similar topics can benefit from the existing expertise and, at best, develop the content further.

The BSI does not review the content of user-defined building blocks, and the building blocks are not usually published in the IT-Grundschutz compendium. If there is a high demand for a topic, it is possible to revise a module further and include it in the IT-Grundschutz-Kompendium. The modules were created by IT-Grundschutz users and kindly made available to the BSI for publication. They may be used free of charge for IT security concepts based on IT-Grundschutz without the author's consent and without providing a source reference.
