Technical description

This bid concerns the following components:

Security Incident Response Coordination

Coordination of incident response activities in collaboration with the Incident Response Task Force. The primary responsibility for basic incident response and forensics still lies with each NGI, while the EGI Global IRTF will coordinate incident response and information exchange. For complex multi-site incidents and in cases where advanced forensics is needed, the EGI Global IRTF will step in and take an active part, to protect the continued integrity of the EGI infrastructure as a whole. This task will also liaise with other CSIRTs via for example TF-CSIRTS and FIRST. EGI Global IRTF coordination needs to be performed in collaboration with the IRTF development activity inside EGI-Engage project.
