The Project

HPI-VDB portal is the result of research work conducted by the IT-Security Engineering Team at the HPI. It is a comprehensive and up-to-date repository which contains a large number of known vulnerabilities of Software. The vulnerability information being gathered from the Internet is evaluated, normalized, and centralized in a high performance database. The textual descriptions about each vulnerability entry are grabbed from public portals of other vulnerability databases, software vendors, etc. A well-structured data model is proposed to host all pieces of information which is related to the specific vulnerability entry. Thanks to the high quality data saved in our database, many services can be provided, including browsing, searching, self-diagnosis, Attack Graph Generation (AG), etc. Additionally, we offer an API for developers to use our database for their development.
