CERT.at is the Austrian national CERT.

CERT.at is the primary contact point for IT-security in a national context. CERT.at will coordinate other CERTs operating in the area of critical infrastructure or communication infrastructure. We will also provide basic IT-security information (warnings, alerts, advise) for SMEs.

In the case of significant online attacks against Austrian infrastructure, CERT.at will coordinate the reponse by the targeted operators and local security teams.

The full description of CERT.at can be found in RFC 2350 format.


Security needs an holistic approach! IT-systems are increasingly interconnected and thus interdependent. In order to protect the national infrastructure, the response to an attack needs to be coordinated between all stakeholders and operators.
