WOMBAT Deliverable D05/D2.3 Requirements analysis

This document outlines the requirements for early warning systems built on technology provided by the WOMBAT project, setting out both: functional and non-functional requirements. The collected requirements reflect the identified user needs and the key directions to be followed within the research and development Work-packages (WP3-Data Collection and Distribution, WP4-Data Enrichment and Characterization, WP5-Threat Intelligence).

The document starts from an assessment of user requirements gathered from potential users including external participants in the Amsterdam Workshop and the WOMBAT development group. This part covers expectations of distinct classes of data users such as: security vendors, malware researchers, ISPs, CERT teams, Government, financial institutions and home users. It details the requirements for the system architecture, data and system functions, and specifies performance, availability and security features to provide sufficient functionality. It also defines user interface, testing and configuration management requirements.
