At the Ericsson Internal Network Security Seminar on September 22nd 2020, The Shadowserver Foundation was invited to give a presentation. The presentation was Titled “Large Scale Internet Garbage Collection and sharing”.
The Shadowserver Foundation has been collecting network threat information on a big-data scale for many years with a mission to make the Internet a more secure environment for all. The collected data is shared with 112+ National CSIRTs and 5900+ network owners worldwide via the Shadowserver free daily remediation feeds and used to support various law enforcement investigations. Data collection and management on such a scale is a big challenge – the talk will give an overview of how Shadowserver operates, what data it collects and what threat information can be inferred from it, how the information is being shared and how Shadowserver has supported various malware botnet takedowns and disruptions.
