The Security Baseline ( was created in GN4-3 to support NREN security programs. In this BoF we want to invite community and NREN security experts to talk with us about security management in R&E. We want to hear what issues security managers are concerned about and what current and future challenges they face in terms of standards and best practices. The goal is to align the future development of the Security Baseline with the needs of the community. What enhancements or additional offerings should the team to provide to deliver real value to NRENS?
