Within the framework of the Advanced Cyber Defence Centre, will be înființatun centre for the collection and analysis of data and a support center that offers structured information to interested parties. As part of this service, users will be able to download the tools from the disinfection.
The third service focuses on detecting and cleaning infected web sites, î n while the fourth service will analyze the anomalies network, including botnets from the cloud or mobile services. The fifth service is aimed at the integration of the instruments necessary to identify and eliminate the malware on the devices of end users.
Project îand proposes, on the long term, not only to identify and îshutting off the servers for command and control, but also the elimination of the networks of botnets.
