REST API The REST API is not enabled or doesn't have content available.

Robots file The Robots.txt file is available.

Sitemaps file The DSpace's Sitemaps feature is enabled.

Custom Handle Prefix This metric gathers data from the REST API, which is currently disabled.

Information Security

DSpace version The Repository's DSpace version is 5.7, which is outdated or not supported . A version upgrade should be performed as soon as possible.

Cryptography The HTTPS protocol is enabled, the minimum version of TLS accepted is 1.2 and the HTTP protocol is forwarding to HTTPS.

Security Headers The Headers X-Frame-Options and/or X-Content-Type-Options are not available. Refer to OWASP Secure Headers Project for details on its benefits.

Tomcat exposed Apache Tomcat does not seem to be the Web Server exposed to the Internet.

Standard Ports Standard HTTP/HTTPS ports are used and no port is exposed in the URL.

Performance

Subsecond Response Time The following pages: Homepage, Community List, Search Result, had an average response time lower than 1 second.

Compression The Gzip or Brotli methods are not available in the Web Server. Some advantages of enabling HTTP Compression are better explained in Mozilla Developer Network Web Docs .

HTTP/2 Protocol The HTTP/2 Protocol is not implemented in the Web Server. HTTP/2 offers many enhancements over HTTP/1.1 such as Multiplexing of requests, Flow control and Prioritization.

Usability

Mobile Ready The User Interface is Mobile Ready according to Google's Mobile-Friendly Test tool.

Single Web Interface Only one User Interface is active. DSpace (up to version 6.X) is shipped with two User Interfaces: XMLUI and JSPUI. It is a good practice to have only one of these active.
