RFC6545 - Real-time Inter-network Defense (RID)
Security incidents, such as system compromises, worms, viruses, phishing incidents, and denial of service, typically result in the loss of service, data, and resources both human and system. Service providers and Computer Security Incident Response Teams need to be equipped and ready to assist in communicating and tracing security incidents with tools and procedures in place before the occurrence of an attack. Real-time Inter-network Defense (RID) outlines a proactive inter-network communication method to facilitate sharing incident-handling data while integrating existing detection, tracing, source identification, and mitigation mechanisms for a complete incident-handling solution. Combining these capabilities in a communication system provides a way to achieve higher security levels on networks. Policy guidelines for handling incidents are recommended and can be agreed upon by a consortium using the security recommendations and considerations. This document obsoletes RFC 6045. [STANDARDS-TRACK]
RFC6546 - Transport of Real-time Inter-network Defense (RID) Messages over HTTP/TLS
The Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF) defines a common XML format for document exchange, and Real-time Inter-network Defense (RID) defines extensions to IODEF intended for the cooperative handling of security incidents within consortia of network operators and enterprises. This document specifies an application-layer protocol for RID based upon the passing of RID messages over HTTP/TLS. [STANDARDS-TRACK]
RFC6684 - Guidelines and Template for Defining Extensions to the Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF)
This document provides guidelines for extensions to the Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF) described in RFC 5070 for exchange of incident management data, and it contains a template for Internet-Drafts describing those extensions, in order to ease the work and improve the quality of extension descriptions. This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.
RFC6685 - Expert Review for Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF) Extensions in IANA XML Registry
This document specifies restrictions on additions to the subset of the IANA XML Namespace and Schema registries, to require Expert Review for extensions to Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF). [STANDARDS-TRACK]
RFC7203 - An Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF) Extension for Structured Cybersecurity Information
This document extends the Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF) defined in RFC 5070 to exchange enriched cybersecurity information among security experts at organizations and facilitate their operations. It provides a well-defined pattern to consistently embed structured information, such as identifier- and XML-based information.
RFC7495 - Enumeration Reference Format for the Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF)
The Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF) is an XML data representation framework for sharing information about computer security incidents. In IODEF, the Reference class provides references to externally specified information such as a vulnerability, Intrusion Detection System (IDS) alert, malware sample, advisory, or attack technique. In practice, these references are based on external enumeration specifications that define both the enumeration format and the specific enumeration values, but the IODEF Reference class (as specified in IODEF v1 in RFC 5070) does not indicate how to include both of these important pieces of information.
This document establishes a stand-alone data format to include both the external specification and specific enumeration identification value, and establishes an IANA registry to manage external enumeration specifications. While this document does not update IODEF v1, this enumeration reference format is used in IODEF v2 and is applicable to other formats that support this class of enumeration references.
RFC7970 - The Incident Object Description Exchange Format Version 2
The Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF) defines a data representation for security incident reports and indicators commonly exchanged by operational security teams for mitigation and watch and warning. This document describes an updated information model for the IODEF and provides an associated data model specified with the XML schema. This new information and data model obsoletes RFCs 5070 and 6685.
RFC8134 - Management Incident Lightweight Exchange (MILE) Implementation Report
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.
