CSEC is an active member of The Shadowserver Foundation
The Shadowserver Foundation is one of the world’s leading resources for Internet security reporting and malicious activity investigation. Servers do around 40 scannings daily, maintaining a global infrastructure spanning 80 countries.
They promote a culture of sharing, while equipping organizations to improve their security. Some of their activities are also supporting criminal investigations, helping protect victims, and offering free remediation reports.
They collect threat data, send free daily remediation reports, and cultivate reciprocal relationships with law enforcement, national governments, and network providers.
Some of their statistics are as follows:
3.7 billion IPv4 addresses scanned on 148 ports each per day (1.07 billion IPv6 on 77 ports)
381 million hosts respond
12 petabytes of malware and threat intelligence stored, growing at 1+ PB/year
4-5 million IP addresses sinkholed per day, across 400 different malware family variants
As a part of the Shadow Alliance, CSEC has top-performing Shadow Sensors installed, which are acquiring safety measurement data for Bosnia and Herzegovina. This is an important step for the overall cyber safety in our country, as this information can help detect and mitigate any vulnerabilities. This way, we can expose harmful activity and exploitable vulnerabilities, therefore contributing to a higher level of Internet security.
