The Juniper Security Incident Response Team, which is a restricted and carefully chosen group of Juniper employees, monitors this email address. No outside users can subscribe to this list.

What information should I send to sirt@juniper.net?

When you contact the list please give as much information as possible. We encourage you to encrypt any sensitive information you send to us using our public key, visible at the bottom of this page and available at various key servers.

How do we respond to a notification?

All issues reported to the Security Incident Response Team will be investigated. Patches will be generated where necessary and a security advisory will be released. Unless you inform us otherwise, it is our usual practice to cooperate with other affected security vendors and organizations such as CERT/CC to share vulnerability information and patches. However, we will never forward the email that you send to us, and we will not pass on any information that could identify you, your company, your machines, or your configuration.

Please note: Juniper does not provide an advance notification service. Security patches and advisories are freely available from our web site.

To report a security issue to Juniper Networks, we encourage you to use the following PGP key for secure communication.

To verify the validity of text security alerts, this PGP key can be used.

To verify the validity of PDF security alerts, this X.509 certificate can be used.
