I was reading an article about Facebook’s recent F8 developer conference, and it mentioned a new platform for sharing security information.
I’m curious whether government agencies will participate or stay far far away.
Here’s a short description from page 3 of their website >> Previous approaches have been challenging. Email and spreadsheets are ad-hoc and inconsistent. It’s difficult to verify threats, to standardize formats, and for each company to protect its sensitive data. Commercial options can be expensive, and many open standards require additional infrastructure.
Faced with these tradeoffs, Facebook suggested an API approach that builds on our internal ThreatData system to create a social platform designed for sharing indicators like bad URLs and domains.
Thought it might be useful to move the discussion to the CyberSecurity Forum. Visit https://www.govloop.com/groups/cybersecurityissues/forum/topic/facebooks-threatexchange/#post-241020 for that.
