Vulnerability Reporting Template

Please use this template to report a vulnerability in PI communication protocols

Note: In case you would like to report a vulnerability for a specific product, please consider to directly contact the manufacturer of the product. In case you are not aware, if the vulnerability is product- or protocol-related, you can use this template. In order to evaluate the issue, PI will likely forward this report to the manufacturer of the component and PI will likely involve an interdisciplinary expert group employing staff from different member companies. In case you would like PI to handle the report without submitting you contact information to the analysis team, please check one of the following boxes..

Please note that when reporting vulnerabilities, you must observe legal provisions or other obligations, especially confidentiality obligations or export control regulations.
PI will in many cases contact the manufacturer of the component or the manufacturer of any technology components (e.g. protocol stacks) used to clarify the vulnerability report.
