Hi. I wrote the botnet mitigation toolkit. You might want to read it leaving normal assumptions about ITU standards processes out of this .. this is an ITU-D effort (read: development and "capacity building"). There are lots of people from the network operator community (NANOG / IETF / IAB regulars, as well as large ISPs) who have agreed to help out in the technical part - in fact, the toolkit cites several RFCs, as well as data from an IAB workshop. In this context, what you have is a UN agency that is putting money and resources into a project that tries to get several different groups that are already working on botnet related issues (from a technical, as well as from policy and social work perspectives) to coordinate, work together etc. And it also tries to field test a whole lot of concepts and best practices that were mostly developed in US and canadian ISPs, in what may well be a rather different operating environment. [Yes, most of it wont change but there will be a few things that need to change, and work differently..] regards srs
