RUS-CERT is the Computer Emergency Response Team of Stuttgart University.

Despite its name containing the letters “RUS”, which is the abbreviation for “Rechenzentrum Universität Stuttgart” (Computing Center of Stuttgart University) it is not part of the computing center but a department of the university’s administrative body.

The name origins of its roots, it started 1998 as a department of RUS and was transformed into an entity directly reporting to the administrative head of Stuttgart University in 2001. Since by then the name “RUS-CERT” already was well-known in the community, it was decided to keep it.
