SIWECOS is a free security scanning service trying to help website owners making there site more secure.
In order to do so, SIWECOS utilizes a total of 5 scanners checking several different areas of your site:

  • Favourite
  • Report

  • HTTP-Header Scanner: ensuring that your server tells the browser to enable additional security features
  • TLS Scanner: checks your HTTPS encryption for known issues, broken chains-of-trust, outdated certificates etc
  • Info Leak Scanner: checks if your sites exposes security relevant information (used Joomla version, plaintext emails)
  • DOMXSS Scanner: verifies that your site is protected against so called DOMXSS attacks
  • Initiative-S Scanner: utilizes the scanning technology of the free Initative-S.de service to check for malware in your websites source code

This plugin makes it much easier to use Joomla with SIWECOS by providing two main features:

  • Easier onboarding: the verification handshake with SIWECOS is automated by the plugin, no need to upload specially named files
  • Direct access to results: you'll get access to your current SIWECOS score right from the backend of your Joomla site
