The objective of this work package is to deliver a capabillity for the efficient exchange of unclassified, but potentially sensitive, cyber defence technical information related to incidents, threats and vulnerabilities amongst national Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs).The project enables the participating Nations to build on previous NATO work in the development of national capabilities. The development of this capability through a multinational project has reduced its overall cost per nation.
Timely information sharing of technical data is essential for the defence of modern communication and information systems (CIS) in a coalition environment. However, efficient, effective and interoperable solutions are not widely available as the security community continues to grapple with standardized formats and supporting technologies. An assessment performed within NATO on this topic highlight that an information sharing capability can now be put in place to address at least the main requirements of CSIRTs.
