ACDC - the Advanced Cyber Defence Centre for Europe

The Advanced Cyber Defence Centre (ACDC) is an EU-supported pilot project aiming to fight botnets. To achieve this, it promotes an integrated solution that comprises several components tackling the botnet problem from multiple sides: detecting threats in networks as well as on websites and end-user devices, correlating and sharing data via a centralised repository, and providing data and support to all affected parties. Depending on the individual incident, the affected parties can include the end customer responsible for an infected machine as well as his ISP and hosting provider, Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs), Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs), antivirus companies, and researchers. In this talk we will take a look at the architecture of ACDC and the comprising components and explore how you can benefit from and contribute to the project.
