CARIS2: Coordinating Attack Response at Internet Scale

‹ Back

The Coordinating Attack Response at Internet Scale (CARIS) 2 workshop, sponsored by the Internet Society, will take place 28 February – 1 March 2019 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. Participants will span regional, national, international, and enterprise CSIRTs, operators (service providers/network & security operators), transport operators and researchers, incident response researchers, vendors, and representatives from standards communities. This workshop will continue the work started at the first CARIS workshop. You can read the final report from the 1st CARIS workshop and in RFC8073, Coordinating Attack Response at Internet Scale (CARIS) Workshop Report.

One goal of the workshop is to improve mutual awareness of the participating organisations, to understand their roles, and improve communication between them. A key outcome of the workshop is to provide input to the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) proposed research group SMART (Stopping Malware, and Researching Threats).

The workshop will include a mix of invited and selected speakers with opportunities to collaborate throughout, taking full advantage of the tremendous value of having representatives from these diverse communities with common goals in the same room. The participants from the first CARIS workshop emphasised the value in bringing together such a diverse group that had never collaborated previously and the workshop aims to reinforce that. We aim to build strong foundations for ongoing collaboration through the proposed SMART Research Group in the IRTF.
