Subject: Re: [cti] EUROPE adopts STIX and TAXII


This occurred because those platforms were introduced at their inception into the ETSI Technical Committee on Cyber Security (TC CYBER) via the OASIS-ETSI MoU.  TC CYBER took several steps.  It included the platforms within a Technical Report on structured information sharing.  See TR 103331.  It then explicitly included the platforms in a published Technical Report that the platforms are essential to the EU implementation of the Network Information Security (NIS) Directive.  See TR 103456.   This was an especially significant step because of ETSI's formal relationship with the EU.  Within the EU governance system, ETSI enjoys special status somewhat unique special status as (along with CEN/CENELEC) the designated standards body for sector standards among EU Member countries.

It also published the specifications within two other published works (TR 103303 on critical infrastructure protection and TR103303, the Global Cyber Security Ecosystem encyclopedic work, worked jointly with ENISA to make a similar recommendation.  Lastly, it also highlighted the platforms at the annual ETSI Security Week workshops over the past three years which include representatives from the EC and most EU Members.   The work also continues.  At the next plenary meeting in February, TR 103333 is being updated to include the latest OASIS CTI specification developments.

All the documents are publicly, freely available and well-versioned with persistent identifiers at ETSI's document site.  See https://portal.etsi.org/webapp/WorkProgram/SimpleSearch/QueryForm.asp
The portal for all technical committee groups, including the massive ensemble of 3GPP which develops the world's mobile communication standards, and for NFV, among others, is at https://portal.etsi.org/

I don't know anything at all about this process - but I noticed it specifically mentions the STIX 1.2 and TAXII 1.1 versions.

        ‘Structured Threat Information _expression_’ (‘STIX 1.2’) and ‘Trusted Automated Exchange of Indicator Information’ (‘TAXII 1.1’) developed by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (‘OASIS’).

How would we get STIX 2.0 and TAXII 2.0 added to this? Anyone have any ideas? Or does it matter? Anyone have insights?
