CollabHosting Use Cases
VSRoom demonstration - gathering interests and ecosystem together
In Estonia, VSRoom provides situational awareness over national emergency preparedness on the financial, ICT infrastructure, and energy and sectors by normalizing, correlating and visualizing (weak) signals from measurement feeds and expert opinion feeds, provided by the governmental and commercial critical infrastructure actors.
- Collaboration environment provides documentation, example reports, and direct links to a VSRoom demo
- While users get access to this environment, the Situation Room community growth is visible
- Stakeholder organizations can notice when their partners join (implicitly express their interest to same things than existing stakeholders)
- Works also in a personal level.
AbuseHelper - gathering interests and ecosystem together
A transparent collaboration environment for growing the community. Contributions from different stakeholders are on single place, where others can follow updates RecentChanges, RSS feeds, etc
Establishing a trusted circle: each community member may invite new members. No overhead for acquiring access. And from the other perspective, existing community will easily spot newcomers.
AbuseHelper Collab makes the community visible. Different actors see who else is onboard. This creates new opportunities for cross-organizational collaboration.
- Secured Collab-chat for day-to-day coordination and supporting users and new-developers.
Baltic Cybershield Exercise
The aim of the Baltic Cyber Shield is to increase understanding of the international cyber environment and to enhance international cooperation for handling technical incidents. During the exercise, six teams from Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden and NATO headquarters (NCIRC) will attempt to defend virtual computer networks against hostile attacks.
The participants of Baltic Cyber Shield used collabhosting as follows:
- Global collaboration environment for game-information
- Own collaboration environments for attackers (red), defenders (blue), technical team (green) and scoring/judges (white)
- Separate collaboration environments for each defender teams (blue 1-5)
Managed access suitable for each teams need. (E.g. white & green teams see everything, where red teams sees only their stuff etc)
- Access control for collab wiki and collab chat are symmetrical, same rules apply to chat channels, without extra access control management
- Reducing access-control overhead: organizers invite team leaders, team leaders invite team members.
Managed Security Audits
- A team consisting a number of organizations from several countries conduct an joint security audit for one multi-national organization
- Each team provide results in real-time to the collab environment
- Instead of separate reports, tool results and human results are assigned directly to customers targets.
- Customer sees the results immediately, instead of waiting the reports
- Each team monitors updates and leverages the results from other teams (for example social engineers utilize the results from WWW-audit team etc)
- Results are available in customer's environment, ready to serve next years audits, conducted either by the same team or third parties.
