Technical Summary
 
Network security incidents, such as system compromises, worms, viruses,
phishing incidents, and denial of service, typically result in the loss of
service, data, and resources both human and system.  To support
collaborative responses to such incidents, network providers and
Computer Security Incident Response Teams need tools and procedures
to support communications and tracing of security incidents.  This
document series includes this specification and 
draft-moriarty-post-inch-rid-transport.

This specification outlines an inter-network communication
method to facilitate sharing incident handling data while integrating
existing detection, tracing, source identification, and mitigation
mechanisms.  Example procedures, which are not required for
conformance to this specification, are included to further describe
environments where this communication method may be used. 

The companion document draft-moriarty-post-inch-rid-transport 
outlines the transport of IODEF and RID messages over HTTP/TLS.

Note to RFC Editor
 
(1) Append the following paragraph to the abstract:

    RID has found use within the international research communities, 
    but has not been widely adopted in other sectors.  This publication
    provides the specification to those communities that have adopted 
    it, and communities currently considering solutions for real-time
    inter-network defense.    The specification may also accelerate
    development of solutions where different transports or message
    formats are required by leveraging the data elements and structures
    specified here.

(2) Insert the following as the next to last paragraph in section 1.2:

    At this point, RID has found use within the international research
    communities, but has not been widely adopted in other sectors.  This
    publication provides the specification to those communities that have
    adopted it, and communities currently considering solutions for real-time
    inter-network defense.   The specification may also accelerate
    development of solutions where different transports or message
    formats are required by leveraging the data elements and structures
    specified here.
