High-profile data breaches and security incidents on the Internet are gaining increasing attention from the Internet community, but also from the public and from governments. Various Cybersecurity initiatives have recently been launched, such as the EU Cybersecurity plan, which plan to improve security on the Internet. Sharing of security incident information is one of the items that shall improve awareness and ensure a quicker response.
As related work, the IETF Messaging Abuse Reporting Format (marf) working group had developed a standardized report format that enables automated processing of observed fraud, spam, virus or other abuse activity in email communication. The Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) community had also gained experience with incident reporting.
Within the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) the Managed Incident Lightweight Exchange (MILE) working group has been chartered to develop standards and extensions for the purpose of improving incident information sharing and handling capabilities. The work in MILE builds on earlier work developed in the IETF Extended INCident Handling (INCH) working group. As a result of the standardization efforts, the Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF) and the Real-time Inter-network Defense (RID) have been published. Several IODEF implementations are already available.
With the increased interest in incident information sharing the workshop organizers believe it is a good time to organize a tutorial workshop to discuss the current state of the standardization and deployment efforts, to share operational experience, and to brainstorm about some upcoming activities, for example the planned work on standardizing a Security Content Automation Protocol (SACM). Ideally, participants will have gained a much better understanding of the big picture as a result of this tutorial workshop.
