EISPP Common Advisory Format Description

This document describes a corner stone of the EISPP approach towards supplying SMEs with security advisories: a common advisory format, which will enable an easy exchange of advisory data between the four CERTs participating in EISPP. The advisory format merges the best-practice information regarding security advisories of these four CERTs.

The format is defined using XML, so the various standards and standard tools of the XML-family can be used for advisory processing.

CEISNE model and processes

This document defines a road map for establishing CEISNE within the European CERT community. It draws on experiences collected in the experimentation phase, regarding both infrastructure and processes for co-operation. The road map is most likely to succeed if it can be implemented under the auspices of an already well-established association of CERTs such as TERENA TF-CSIRT.
