Title: Give and Take – Mitigation and Response: A collaborative approach

Abstract:

To counteract network-based attacks, an approach is to move mitigation from the target network to the networks of Internet Service Providers (ISP). However, it

remains unclear to what extent countermeasures are set up and which mitigation approaches are adopted by ISPs. This presentation will show some interesting results of a survey that aims to gain insight into processes, structures and capabilities of ISPs to mitigate and respond to network-based attacks. Further, a brief overview of existing exchange formats and protocols to share threat information is provided. Besides looking backward, future research directions are presented.
