Security incidents, such as system compromises, worms, viruses,
phishing incidents, and denial of service, typically result in the
loss of service, data, and resources both human and system.  Service
providers and Computer Security Incident Response Teams need to be
equipped and ready to assist in communicating and tracing security
incidents with tools and procedures in place before the occurrence of
an attack.  Real-time Inter-network Defense (RID) outlines a
proactive inter-network communication method to facilitate sharing
incident-handling data while integrating existing detection, tracing,
source identification, and mitigation mechanisms for a complete
incident-handling solution.  Combining these capabilities in a
communication system provides a way to achieve higher security levels
on networks.  Policy guidelines for handling incidents are
recommended and can be agreed upon by a consortium using the security
recommendations and considerations.  This document obsoletes RFC
6045.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
