Registration with Siwecos

The project Siwecos was founded by Eco (Verband der Internetwirtschaft) and RUB (Ruhruniversität Bochum) to help small and medium-sized companies to have their websites checked for security flaws and potentially malicious code. To do this, a number of scanners have been developed that will alert you to configuration errors and malware.

In order to have your domains checked for security flaws with the Siwecos scanners, you must first register and then login with your personal data. Your data will in no case be passed on to third parties.
