What is Network Vulnerability Scanning?

The University of Toronto has a large number of networked devices, including: desktops, laptops, printers, and other devices. Some of these devices may potentially have security issues. Network Vulnerability Scanning tests every connected device on our network, and attempts to identify these potential security issues. We post this information for network administrators, so that they can fix the problems before hackers take advantage of our networked devices.

How do I get access to the results?

The scan results are restricted on a need-to-know basis.

If you’re a network administrator and you don’t have access to the scan results for systems that you manage, contact us at

If you want to be reminded that a new report has been completed, go to, complete the required details and select scan-notify-l.
