We cooperate with the Team Cymru to identify and eliminate machines and computers in the MU network infected by various kinds of malware.
We also share and analyze data collected from honeypots which we run in the MU network.
Our goals in this field:
- to share real life experience,
- to enhance communication between CSIRT teams,
- to coordinate incident resolution in case of large and multi-domain computer security incidents.
We actively cooperate with the CESNET-CERTS team, the security team of the academic network CESNET2. We exchange not only detected threats in both networks, we also share our working techniques and experiences from our daily work.
National Security Authority
We cooperate with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), part of the National Security Authority, in response to various cyber security threats. Together, we use our experience to educate experts in IT and network security.
INVEA-TECH is a university spin-off company focused on development of professional solutions for high-speed network applications. The team CSIRT-MU uses its FlowMon probes and other utilities to do 24/7 monitoring of the MU network. We also participate in development of security plugins and actively contribute to the INVEA-TECH Community program.
CIRC (CYBER II)
We cooperate with the Faculty of Informatics, MU on the project focused on development of mobile dedicated device enabling response to computer security incidents (CIRC). Project falls within one of the Czech Republic Ministry of Defense priorities.
Security of optical components in data and communication networks (BOP)
We participate in the project BOP, aimed at research and development of security appliances in high speed networks. The project reflects current needs of the Ministry of the Interior. The results of the project will be used to enhance security of the university network.
Cybernetic Proving Ground (CPG)
Applied research in the Cybernetic Proving Ground project is focused on development of unique cloud-based infrastracture for research and development of methods to defend against cyber attacks. The project reflects current needs of the National Security Authority, the Ministry of Defense and both government and national CSIRT/CERT teams.
Czech CyberCrime Centre of Excellence (C4E)
We cooperate on the project C4E, creating national centre for training and education in defense against cyber criminality threats.
We, together with other Czech academic security teams, participate in development of the Warden system. The system is designed to allow fast and easy way to share detected security threats among involved CSIRT teams.
With the Faculty of Informatics, MU we cooperated on the CYBER project. The goal was to protect IT systems and infrastructure from various kinds of cyber attacks, so-called Cyber Defence. Project itself falls within one of the Czech Republic Ministry of Defense priorities.
