The final report from the meeting is available (pdf).
The following recommendations are made in the final report:
|1.||GÉANT should set up a mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org), initially with just the attendees from the workshop. This should be a closed list and intended as just a general discussion list for cross-group discussions. It is not necessary to establish another SIG or TF for this activity, but it would be good to identify a general home for the work and a small amount of GÉANT coordination support.||Complete.|
|2.||NRENs should explore the interest in joint procurement of commercial DDoS mitigation solutions.||A proposal has been put forward by the GÉANT procurement team for linking this with the GÉANT World service procurement.|
|3.||The SGA2 white paper on security should be reviewed to see if it is possible to fund some of the activity discussed in the workshop within GN4-2.||Not started.|
|4.||NRENs should explore the options for further developing home-grown solutions such as the work done by DFN. Funding would be required to support this work.||Not started.|
|5.||NRENs should explore opportunities to jointly work with organisations undertaking alternative approaches to mitigation. Team Cymru, Radically Open Security and Flowspec production trials were proposed as initial organisations to approach.||Initial early discussion meetings held.|
