2. Tech Chat: Security Incident Information Sharing (SIIS) Workshop

Hannes Tschofenig presented a brief overview of the workshop on Security Incident Information Sharing [] scheduled for 26 July 2013 in Berlin. The workshop is hosted by Freie Universität Berlin, and is free to attend for registered participants [see to register].

The workshop was arranged because proposed regulation in the European Commission on cybersecurity and data protection both have components of security incident information sharing and breach notification in their proposals. A new group, “Network and Information Security Platform,” was formed. The platform will have three working groups, one of which is about information exchange. The Information Exchange WG will identify best practices for incident reporting, incident coordination, and exchange of information on threats and vulnerabilities affecting networks and information systems. The work relates to ongoing IETF work in the MILE WG and the proposed SACM WG.

The goals of the workshop are:

  • Get input from the European security community.
  • Learn about IETF technology and its usage (awareness raising about IETF).
  • Socialize and increase our network.
  • Additional time for discussions about upcoming IETF work.
  • Ideally: Get a better understanding of the bigger picture on where this incident information sharing work is going.

Eliot Lear asked if the platform would create a treaty or MOU amongst the participants related to the sharing of threat information. Matthias Wählisch replied that such agreements are already a part of the supply chain. Kathleen Moriarty noted that the platform will be pointing to existing standards wherever possible, not maintaining the contractual arrangements for sharing the threat information.

3. RIPE Roundtable

Eliot Lear reported that Paul Rendek, Director of External Relations for the RIPE NCC, expressed interest in inviting the IETF to give an overview of the IETF to regulators during the next RIPE Roundtable []. The board agreed that it would be beneficial to give such a presentation to RIPE, and acknowledged that it should reach out to other RIRs as well. Eliot will work with ISOC to reach out to the other RIRs. Jari Arkko, Ross Callon, and Russ Housley will work with Eliot on the presentation for the RIPE Roundtable.

The deadline to submit comments is 16 July 2013, and the reply comment deadline is 7 August 2013. Russ Housley will reach out to the Number Research Organization (NRO) to see if there is interest in coordinating on this response.
