Abstract: Dark matter can be constrained via particle physics experiments like LHC, direct search experiments like CDMS, astrophysical and cosmological observations. The input and the interplay of all these different sectors are important in order to understand the nature of dark matter. I am going to argue that astrophysical constraints arising from compact stars can potentially impose severe constraints on dark matter candidates.
