IVPN web infrastructure security audit concluded

IVPN News By Nick Pestell | Posted on April 11, 2024

We’re pleased to announce that a sixth annual independent security audit has concluded. The assessment focused on Web UI, backend components, API endpoints, underlying web servers, and web infrastructure.

We’d like to share two key excerpts from the report:

“The IVPN Customer website and underlying servers presented a substantially secure posture during the assessment. This is reflected in the limited findings identified within this report, consisting solely of two Low-severity vulnerabilities and two general weaknesses. The successful mitigation of a wide range of common web application risks is a testament to the effectiveness of the security measures implemented by the project overseers.”

“To finalize, Cure53 is undeniably impressed with the overall security posture of the IVPN Customer website and its underlying infrastructure. The codebase exhibits assured standards of quality, while the implemented architecture and frameworks demonstrate a strong foundation in secure design principles.”

Audit results

The Cure53 team conducted the audit over 8 days in March 2024. The audit was divided into three work packages:

A white-box approach was used whereby the auditors had access to our public and private Github code repositories and a dedicated test environment. No access to production servers or infrastructure was granted to members of the Cure53 team.

A total of two vulnerabilities (low severity) and two general issues (info level) were identified. All vulnerabilities have been remediated.

We have made the Cure53 report available for those interested in the details. For transparency we decided to publish the full report with only potentially sensitive information redacted (e.g. internal hostnames).

Commitments going forward

We believe that extensive regular audits are necessary to ensure our customer’s security and continued trust. We continue to commit to an annual security audit where we will focus on those parts of our infrastructure and apps that we believe to be the most critical.

IVPN preparing for 6th annual security audit

Posted on February 15, 2024 by Nick Pestell

Consistent with our pledge to conduct a yearly review of our systems, we have commissioned the independent security auditing organisation Cure53 to perform a security audit in March 2024. As we remarked last year, audits we arrange focus on parts of our systems that received significant updates.

Change of company name to IVPN Limited

Posted on August 10, 2023 by IVPN Staff

We have officially changed the name of the company operating IVPN from Privatus Limited to IVPN Limited. Ownership structure, jurisdiction, address and administrative registration details are unchanged. The reason for this move is to bring our product and brand name into alignment, reducing confusion and providing clarity to customers, partners and other parties about the operator of the service.
