Email RFC 2142

I am always amazed at the wealth of talent on the SANS alumni email list. Yesterday, someone asked "what email address do you use for security? If someone discovers a vulnerability, issue, or breach how do you expect them to easily get a hold of you?"

Great question. Having some experience in this, I generally dredge their website or use Google. What I didn't know is RFC 2142 answers this very question.

Credit to Igor Mozolevsky for this information.

Part 4 of RFC2142[1] states:

4. NETWORK OPERATIONS MAILBOX NAMES

Operations addresses are intended to provide recourse for customers,
providers and others who are experiencing difficulties with the
organization's Internet service.

MAILBOX AREA USAGE
----------- ---------------- ---------------------------
ABUSE Customer Relations Inappropriate public behavior
NOC Network Operations Network infrastructure
SECURITY Network Security Security bulletins or queries
