The University IT Services offers a variety of security benefits: backup of local data, virus protection and certification authority.
Local data back-up (TSM)
Automatic data back-up of workstation computers for employees, institutes and faculties.
Virus protection
The University IT Services provides a free anti-virus software for all University members and runs a virus scanner for the central e-mail service.
Freiburg University’s websites are certified by the German Research Network (Deutschen Forschungsnetz DFN-PCA). All certified applicants are then confirmed by the University IT Services Registration Authority (RA) and added to their database. These certificates follow Norm X509, not the PGP Standard.

Certification Authority
The University IT Services runs and operates a certification authority (Uni-RF CA). This service allows all University members to have confidential and authenticated communication.
