The site is promoting security awareness by offering free an online security audit, firewall test, and research center. You can audit your firewall, do a port scan, or do a privacy test to get immediate results, with information about how to act upon problem areas. The site also offers a PDA / WAP security scan. It features full scans of all 65,535 ports and user input scans that allow a visitor to test only the ports he/she needs. There have been countless browser vulnerabilities in both code and browser misconfiguration. Rather than test for every possible vulnerability, the Privacy Section attempts to test for top-level vulnerabilities. The site has been designed to do speedy scans, which could lead to false readings, especially those on a slower connection. Reduce the errors by performing multiple scans and comparing results. The reading room offers more information and after performing a test, the results provide links to where you can read more about certain vulnerabilities. It’s set up to be easy to use and has features for advanced users.
