Sitemaps file The DSpace's Sitemaps feature is enabled.

Custom Handle Prefix The Handle Prefix has been customized.

Information Security

DSpace version The Repository's DSpace version is 6.4-SNAPSHOT, which is outdated or not supported . A version upgrade should be performed as soon as possible.

Cryptography In order to meet this criteria, the HTTPS protocol must be enabled, accepting TLS with minimum version of 1.2 and the HTTP protocol must forward 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.

Content in Communities and Collections Some Communities and Collections don't have content. According to the REST API, there are 0 empty Communities and 1 empty Collection in the Repository. The total number of Communities is 6 and Collections is 5.
