Arbor Launches ATLAS

If you didn't see the announcement, you might like perusing Arbor Network's new Active Threat Level Analysis System (ATLAS) Initiative, "a multi-stage project to develop the world’s first globally scoped threat analysis network with the help of the service provider community." I'm not sure I totally agree with that description, but the range of data available looks interesting. I plan to mine some of my NSM session data based on information from ATLAS. I applaud Arbor for making this sort of information publicly and freely available.

Indeed, I read this and thought, "awesome, too bad I can't pay for it." Then I saw it is freely available! Rock!

While I think some of the high and glorious spin on things like this is a bit top-heavy, I do like the information this can present for trending and such. Almost like going one more step beyond DShield's port scanning lists.
