Internet Early Warning System: The Global View

  • Norbert Pohlmann

The constantly growing importance of the Internet for our knowledge and information society makes it necessary to analyze and be acquainted with its status beyond the limits of the individual network operators. Only precise knowledge of the normal status makes it possible to detect anomalies which influence the functionality of the Internet.

With the help of the probe-based Internet Analysis System, which is currently being implemented as a research and development project of the Institute for Internet Security at the University of Applied Sciences in Gelsenkirchen in collaboration with the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), it is intended to create and analyze local and above all global perspectives in order to make the generation of early warnings possible.

Particular focal points of the project are the collection of information in compliance with data protection regulations and optimization of the amount of information, so as to be able to store information in the long term and therefore allow the analysis of trends and developments over long periods.
