Slovak networks wish to cooperate to improve Internet security

In late June, the representatives of NIX.CZ, the Slovak cyber security team CSIRT.SK and a number of Slovak networks met in Bratislava to take part in the first working group and discuss issues related to the future development of the Slovak peering node NIX.SK and with the creation of the Slovak version of the FENIX security project.


During the working group, we presented the changes in the Slovak peering node NIX.SK and the FENIX security project. In regards to the latter, we then opened up a discussion about creating its version in Slovakia. We very much appreciate the interest shown by local operators in questions of Internet security and the fact that they don’t treat these issues lightly. On behalf of NIX.CZ, I would like to assure everyone that we are doing our best to meet these expectations, especially in terms of bringing about the creation of a Slovak version of the FENIX project,” said Martin Semrád, the Director of NIX.CZ Association, which runs the Slovak peering node NIX.SK.


The first working group was attended by the following companies and organisations: Orange, Benestra, Forpsi, Lightstorm, SK.NIC, Digi Slovakia, Slovanet, VNET, Netbox, Národná agentúra pre sieťové a elektronické služby [the Slovak National Agency for Network and Electronic Services], SITEL and NASES. The next meeting of the representatives of these and other entities interested in creating and participating in the FENIX Project is scheduled for late September/early October of this year.
