2. Main Achievements

The incident response team handled two security incidents during the quarter and issued two security advisories.

The security monitoring team was also asked by Open Science Grid to 

host a Pakiti service to monitor their machines. A pilot operation has been started and its impact will be evaluated. New custom security probes were developed as required for monitoring software now beyond end of life and for the NGI SAM instance. Establishment of a dedicated Nagios box to monitor MW components.

SSC6 - report still needed Preparing for

Preparations have been made for the next EGI-CSIRT security tutorial to happen at the GridKa summer school (August) and at the Technical Forum (September). These will include hands-on forensics exercises.

The Software Vulnerability Group handled 4 new vulnerabilities during the quarter and issued or updated five advisories, one of which was High Risk.

Discussions between CSIRT, SVG, and OMB agreed the approach to sites running software for which security support has ended. A general advisory on this was issued by CSIRT and a further advisory has been drafted on the timeline for migration away from gLite 3.2 middleware components.

3. Issues and Mitigation

Issue Description Mitigation Description

4. Plans for the next period

Work will continue on the improvements of the RT/RTIR ticketing system, e.g. to facilitate better reporting.

The Site Certification Procedure will be revised to include the required security items and a procedure will be developed for the handling of compromised certificates.

Work will continue on requiring the timely migration from unsupported software.

Work will continue on Pakiti V3 and the move to site-wide security monitoring.

SSC6 will be performed at approximately 40 sites across EGI and more NGIs will perform the national variant of SSC5.

Security training will be given at the GridKa school and the Technical Forum. These will include hands-on training in forensics.

The annual review of the SVG issue handling procedure will be performed.
