Incident Response

Incident response is the process of evaluating, analyzing and coordinating actions when dealing with IT-security incidents, complains, observations or requests for information or support in case of misuse of computing ressources or networks. Usually, IT-security events are reported by email to abuse∂kit.edu. This is a functional email address, that should be eastablished by the owner of a domain according to RFC 2142 for reporting abuse. All emails to the abuse reporting email addresses of the KIT are handled by the computer emergency response team of the KIT (KIT-CERT).
 
The KIT-CERT is stationed at the computing center of the KIT (SCC) in the department ISM and handles the wide range of IT-security incidents concerning misuse of computer and network ressources and services of the KIT. The KIT-CERT initiates preventive measures in advance to prevent possible abuse as well as counter measures in the case of an ongoing abuse incident. The abuse team is the main contact in case of a suspected misuse of network based services of the KIT and for IT-security related topics and questions.
 
The KIT-CERT operates an own web site that can be reached by using the link at the top.
