II.1.4)Short description:

The MeliCERTes facility, developed under SMART 2015/1089, involves use of open source tools developed and maintained by and for Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs) for secure communications, incident and threat management and artefact analysis. It exists to support the CSIRTs Network under the NIS Directive by facilitating cross-border co-operation encompassing data exchange between two or more participating CSIRTs based on the concept of trust.

The Commission proposes to procure a manager to further maintain and develop MeliCERTes in conjunction with ENISA and participating CSIRTs. The manager should have an excellent knowledge of the CSIRTs user community and so has a direct insight as to the ongoing and evolving needs of CSIRTs regarding software tools. The manager will maintain the existing facility, will provide enabling hardware, will establish arrangements for the maintenance of the code base and will enable MeliCERTes to evolve with new tools and functions.
