Hi all:

I have performed an Operations Directorate review of

  "This document is a collection of implementation reports from vendors,
   consortiums, and researchers who have implemented one or more of the
   standards published from the IETF INCident Handling (INCH) and
   Management Incident Lightweight Exchange (MILE) working groups."

This draft is a collection of information about Security Incident
reporting protocols, and the implementation of systems that use them
to share such information.  It is simply a collection of information,
it makes no attempt to compare the various standards or implementations.
As such, it will be of interest to Network Operators who wish to collect
and share such data.

Operationally, Operators would need to decide which incident data
collection group they want to be part of, that choice will strongly
influence their choice of reporting protocol and applications to
gather and distribute the data.

The draft seems (to me) to need quite a bit of copy-editing, I list
a few changes and suggestions below ...

S1  RFC5070-bis.  Is there an Internet Draft about this, or some other
      document you could reference?  It's mentioned again in section
      3.1, but there's nothing about it in the References section.

S2.1  s/provides a solutions/provides solutions/
S2.3  s/IODEF formatted-message to/IODEF formatted-messages to/
      s/by REN-ISAC are designed/by REN-ISAC is designed/

S3.2  "IODEF-SCI is the IETF draft"  there's no reference to such a
      draft, there should be.
      "It also equips the interface ..."  Exactly what does this mean?

S4.2.2 s/prevents from accidentally/prevents accidentally/
       s/ensure it is a well formed format/
         ensure it is well formed/

S5.1  "General availability of Threat Central will
       be in 2014."
      It's now well into 2016 - this needs updating!

Overall, I think the material in this draft is interesting, but it
needs quite a bit of tidying/updating to get it ready for publishing.

Cheers, Nevil
