The purpose of the Intrusion Detection Working Group is to define data formats and exchange procedures for sharing information of interest to intrusion detection and response systems, and to management systems which may need to interact with them. The Intrusion Detection Working Group will coordinate its efforts with other IETF Working Groups.
The outputs of this working group will be:
1. A requirements document, which describes the high-level functional requirements for communication between intrusion detection systems and requirements for communication between intrusion detection systems and with management systems, including the rationale for those requirements. Scenarios will be used to illustrate the requirements.
2. A common intrusion language specification, which describes data formats that satisfy the requirements.
3. A framework document, which identifies existing protocols best used for communication between intrusion detection systems, and describes how the devised data formats relate to them.

Minutes Minutes, 55th IETF Intrusion Detection Working Group (IDWG) of the Security Area. TThe IDWG met at 0900 on Thursday of the 55th IETF, Atlanta Mike Erlinger reviewed agenda. The group had no changes to propose. Mike gave an overview of the status of each of the groups four documents. IDXP. IESG reviewed and made various minor editorial comments. Now back in the AD's inbox. Version 07 to mail list, and 07 posted. Tunnel. IESG reviewed and requested various minor changes. Version 04 to mail list, 04 posted. Requirements doc. IESG reviewed and suggested minor changes. Version 10 to mail list, 10 posted. IDMEF - AD reviewed and requested various minor changes, a couple that were actually substantive (basically the document wasn't completely XML compliant). Version 09 to mailing list, 07 is posted (didn't quite make the deadline). The AD requested we take out the long intro on XML and make it a separate document, but we will keep it. All documents are now with Steve Bellovin who has committed to act on them within two weeks. Status of group: Idle awaiting action by IESG.
