COSSAS is an initiative of the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), whose Cyber Security Technologies unit is heavily invested in the concept of automated security. Many of the software components that are presently maintained under the COSSAS umbrella in fact stem from (domestic and pan-European) innovation projects in the field of cyber security automation that TNO has been involved in. TNO maintains the COSSAS infrastructure on Github and Gitlab, conducts intake and quality assurance on all software contributions and actively leverages its network in the SOC, CERT and CTI space to drive the COSSAS community forward.
dcypher is a Dutch collaboration platform that drives cyber security innovation across public, private and academic parties. The COSSAS initiative aligns well with its ambitions, not least because it supports its innovation road map in the field of Automated Vulnerability Research (AVR). dcypher contributes to the further development of the COSSAS community by actively promoting the initiative among its constituents as well as facilitating promotional activities and events.
The COSSAS initiative would welcome further partners that can help drive the development and adoption of novel software components for cyber security automation. If your organization is interested in joining the partnership, please contact us to discuss the possibilities.
