Joachim Biskup, Bernhard Hämmerli, Michael Meier, Sebastian Schmerl, Jens Tölle, and Michael Vogel. 2. 08102 Working Group – Early Warning Systems.

Early Warning Systems aim at detecting unclassified but potentially harmful sys-tem behavior based on preliminary indications and are complementary to Intrusion Detection Systems. Both kinds of systems try to detect, identify and react before pos-sible damage occurs and contribute to an integrated and aggregated situation report (big picture). A particular emphasis of Early Warning Systems is to establish hypotheses and predictions as well as to generate advises in still not completely understood situations. Thus the term early has two meanings, a) to start early in time aiming to minimize damage, and b) to process uncertain and incomplete information.
