The smooth operation of critical infrastructures, such as telecommunications or electricity supply is essential for our society. In recent years, however, operators of critical infrastructures have increasingly struggled with cyber security problems. Through the use of ICT standard products and the increasing network interdependencies, the attack surfaces and channels have multiplied. Therefore, the goals in CIIS are twofold: the development of mechanisms for information correlation, aggregation, and fingerprinting of status and attack data, as well as the development of methods and technologies for the exchange of information on cyber incidents to better defend against cyber attacks and to streamline the analysis of current threats. As a result, the resilience of systems is improved (e.g., operators of critical infrastructures) both between organizations and between organizational units within large organizations (e.g., within ministries), and operational security increased regarding cyber attacks in sensitive areas.
