Tuency - Constituency Portal for CERTs

The new Constituency Portal "Tuency" was designed by CERT.at and the development has been delegated to the software development company Intevation. Tuency's web portal allows you to manage your constituency members who then can manage their relevant data themselves. This is important, for example, if IP subnets or email addresses change.


In order to be future-proof and use production-ready software, Tuency ships with field-tested components.

Name Description
Laravel Used as PHP Framework
Composer Used as PHP package manager
Vue.JS Used for a single-page-application (SPA) frontend, yarn as package manager
KeyCloak As authentication service
Docker (optional) For containerized usage in your deployment
PostgreSQL Used as database

Customer-Relationship-Management (CRM)

In Tuency, an organization administrator can create suborganizations, which in turn can also have their own administrator. In each organization, multiple users can be created, who can then manage the associated organization. Organizations are subject to a tree-like hierarchy.


Individual tags can be set for each user, user group or organisation to represent users or organisations' memberships or attributes. The export functions can filter by these tags.


An organization administrator can claim network objects, for example Domains, Sub-Domains, IP address blocks, single IP addresses or RIPE Organisation handles. The claimed network objects are displayed in a tree-like structure to show the fine granularity of the claimed blocks. For network objects rules for security incident notifications can be configured and the network object can be associated with an abuse-contact.


Tuency itself offers a rich API to query the correct abuse-contact for a given network object (ASN, IP-Address, Domain) and supports hierarchical inheritance and notification rules! IntelMQ is able to communicate with the API through an expert (IntelMQ "bot").


Keycloak is used as identity and access management provider. It's open source and is widely used as a single sign-on solution. It uses standard protocols like OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect and SAML 2.0 and also integrates with existing LDAP or Active Directory services. The Tuency source code and documentation can be found in Tuency's source-code repository.
