1.1 Mission and Objectives:
The GÉANT CERT team secures the logical and physical structure of the GÉANT Network and all data transiting the network, responding to security incidents and mitigating securing breaches, weaknesses and risks. Specifically, this relates to the detection, reporting, and mitigation of incidents targeting the GÉANT infrastructure. Of the potential hundreds of events detected each month, a percentage require the Security Team to work with NREN CERTs, and in certain cases, international teams. This work covers the investigation of the incident, recommending and supporting the GÉANT Operation Control Centre to implement firewall filters. GÉANT CERT’s role covers monitoring systems for malicious events and taking proactive measures to ensure systems are not compromised.
An additional level of work covered by the Security Team includes improving security mechanisms and reviewing existing controls throughout the management component of the network and the GÉANT network itself.
GÉANT CERT as the Security Team of the GEANT Network ensures the proactive protection of the GÉANT network and services, thereby ensuring end users ability to use the network to facilitate research and education. Furthermore, the GÉANT CERT is actively engaged into the European and International CSIRT community sharing data and experiences and is member of TF-CSIRT, Trusted Introducer, and FIRST.
The primary constituency are NRENs and associated CERTs. Towards its constituency, the role of the GÉANT security team is to assist the NRENs and especially the associated CERTs to mitigate or to recover from the incidents affecting the GÉANT network and or targeting or originating from GÉANT NRENs
