via Netflix's Jason Chan, comes word of a OSS automation effort targeting security related events, and actions thereo. Monikered FIDO or more accurately 'Fully Integrated Defense Operation' the system ostensibly serves as an orchestration layer for automated response activities, in the case of security event triggers. Comprised of a well thought-out architecture of infrastructure components, an encapsulated orchestration, correlation and scoring engine coupled to a threat intelligence system... But, I'll leave the full explanation in the obviously capable hands of Netflix's Security Team; examine. if you will, FIDO at GitHub. And, because it's Open Source Software, the security community at large can reap the benefits of this superalitve effort. Outstanding.
