EMBArk - The firmware security scanning environment


EMBArk is the web based enterprise interface for the firmware security scanner EMBA. It is developed to provide the firmware security analyzer EMBA as a containerized service and to ease accessibility to the firmware scanning backend EMBA regardless of system and operating system.

Furthermore EMBArk improves the data provision by aggregating the various scanning results in an aggregated management dashboard.
