Group description

  • June 19, 2015
  • Berlin, Germany
  • In coordination with FIRST 2015

The Coordinating Attack Response at Internet Scale (CARIS) workshop, sponsored by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) and the Internet Society (ISOC), will take place Friday of the FIRST Conference, June 19th in Berlin. We would very much appreciate your participation. The audience will include members of the FIRST community (regional, national, international, and enterprise CSIRTs), operators (Service providers/network & security operators), researchers, vendors, and representatives from standards communities.

One goal of the workshop is to improve mutual awareness of the participating organizations, to understand their roles, and improve communication between them. A key outcome of the workshop is to provide greater awareness of existing efforts to mitigate specific types of attacks and greater understanding of the options others have to collaborate and engage with these efforts. Another goal is to improve end user experience through stronger coordination between the security, operations, and research communities.

The day-long workshop will include a mix of invited and selected speakers with opportunities to collaborate throughout, taking full advantage of the tremendous value of having these diverse communities with common goals in one room.

Expressions of interest:

For existing attack-mitigation working groups, the survey at should be completed by those organizations whose mitigation efforts or use case analyses are in this arena. The data gathered through this questionnaire, including how to participate in your attack mitigation working group, will be shared with all of the participants at the workshop to better enable collaboration with your effort.

Alternatively, submit a 2-page statement of interest that includes some key insight or challenge relevant to the broader group. This may include research topics around attack mitigation or information sharing/exchange, success stories from your CSIRT, lessons learned, or a deep dive on a particular topic such as privacy or trust.

All attendees are required to complete the survey or submit a 2-page research paper to the CARIS program committee via EasyChair. Accepted submissions will be published.

Attendees will be selected based on these submissions to ensure the workshop will be beneficial to all and has the potential to impact the coordination of attack response at Internet scale.

There is no fee to attend the workshop.

Submission Instructions:

Accepted position papers will be published on the workshop agenda.

Additional Details:

A social activity will follow the workshop to provide additional time for collaboration between participants.

We look forward to your contribution and participation. All attendees will need to respond to the survey or submit a 2 page research paper.
