Abstract:

Wherever they are, CERTs Computer Emergency Response Teams as security incident handlers have hands-on experience with the latest attack techniques on the Internet. This is the result of direct contact with their constituency and other CERT teams, which often serve as the first line of support when faced with new threats. The dynamic development of threats remains a never ending challenge not just for them, but the entire security industry. Research and development projects that are launched in response to analyzing threats, often have a problem keeping up and developing adequate tools that can be applied in practice. Nevertheless, creating new platforms that can facilitate detection and improve situation awareness is critical in order to stop these threats.
