ENISA warns about the risks of using discontinued software, not only because of the lack of support from the manufacturer, but also from third parties, like manufacturers of anti-malware or other kind of software, or computer peripherals. This will lead in persistent exposure to vulnerabilities and lack of possibility to update peripherals or third party applications.

ENISA has conducted a survey about the security mechanisms used by TSPs (Trust Service Providers) in Europe, and their interoperability, under the scope of the proposed new Regulation on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market, which will supersede the current Directive 1999/93/EC on a Community framework for electronic signatures. The...

The aim of...
This document recommends measures to mitigate the impact of security incidents on trust service providers (TSP) by proposing suitable technical and organisational means to handle the security risks posed to the TSP. This is done using a certification service provider (CSP) as representative example. The document focuses on the concepts and entities of hierarchical public key infrastructures...
This document covers the following aspects of Trust Service Providers operations:
• Assets: identification, classification and evaluation
• Threats to assets: classification and evaluation
• Vulnerabilities present in the environment
• Probability or frequency of the threat
• The impact that the exposure can have on the organization
• Countermeasures that can reduce the...
