What is context sensitive security?
Context-sensitive security refers to the use of different types of contextual information to improve security practices or the capabilities of security applications.
In context-sensitive security, security researchers collect various types of data including device location, time of day, device types, and other indicators that can affect security performance.
The use of context-sensitive security tools has led to a special category of business intelligence that could be referred to as 'security intelligence' - any type of information that can aid security processes by informing systems about the context of cyber threats or cybercrime. Attacks.
Although individual vendors can offer contextual security applications, large vendors have taken the initiative to standardize the industry. In 2013, for example, Cisco developed the pxGrid framework in collaboration with various partners so that various provider platforms can exchange context-sensitive security information. Standard groups like the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) could also play an important role in developing context-sensitive security tools.
