Early Warning and Network Intelligence


EWNI 2010

1st European Workshop on Internet Early Warning and Network Intelligence

January 27, 2010

Hamburg, Germany



Threats in the Internet are numerous. They have to be dealt with at
many levels - ranking from firewalls or intrusion detection systems
(IDS) to measures with a broader or even global focus. Early Warning
Systems (EWS) are such broadly focused measures. EWS usually consist
of distributed sensors networks and some central analysis or
assessment facilities. The sensors collect raw data, e.g. statistics
about connections (NetFlows), malware samples, or IDS events. By means
of the centralized analysis facilities the "big picture" of what is
happening can be obtained. EWS is valuable to numerous roles and
entities. Be it larger organizations, governments, or Computer
Emergency Response Teams (CERT). All greatly benefit from EWS and the
resulting (global) network situational awareness when having to judge
the security of their own networks. The usefulness of EWS for
Critical Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP) follows
directly from this. Only when many actors deliver pieces can the
puzzle be put together.

Thus, the need for collaboration has been - more or less -
accepted. However, large scale, collaborative detection efforts have
been difficult. EWS started addressing this a couple of years ago,
already. And while certain technical requirements (privacy, data
protection, ...) have been met, EWS still require a lot of research
efforts and improvements in order to keep up with the perpetuous arms
race between attackers and defenders.


The goal of this workshop is twofold: Evaluate the current state of
the art of EWS and explore both related and future research areas. On
an organizational level the workshop is intended to stimulate
collaborative efforts.

The program committee solicits submissions particularly from the
following areas but will carefully consider all contributions which
are sufficiently related to Early Warning and Network Intelligence:

- modeling EWS
- organizational and operational issues of EWS
- practical experiences
- international cooperation
- inter-organizational communication/cooperation
- interoperability
- next generation EWS
- distributed sensor networks
- data acquisition
- data aggregation/evaluation
- visualization
- data navigation/user interfaces
- infrastructural network security
- privacy and data protection in EWS
- management of large-scale EWS installations
- HCI aspects of EWS
