  • Email your findings as quickly as possible to responsible (full stop) disclosure ('at'sign) schiphol (full stop) nl.
    If possible, encrypt your email with a Schiphol PGP-key This prevents the information from falling into the wrong hands.
  • In the body of your email, please remember to tell us how you discovered the problem, so that we are able to reproduce it. Describe the problem and pass on the IP address or URL.
  • Also include your contact information, such as an email address or telephone number. Then we can contact you to work on a safe solution together.

Thanks for doing your bit

We trust that you will treat any information regarding security issues as strictly confidential and only share this information with Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. We also kindly ask you not to take any further action to demonstrate the security issue, and to delete any confidential information you may have had access to when you discovered the breach.

Be careful not to break the law

Please take great care when looking into the security of our IT systems, as you may accidentally break Dutch or international laws. This may open you up to possible criminal charges. The rule of law supersedes the rules set out by Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, so take great care to ensure you are not engaging in any illegal activities that we are required to report to the authorities.
