The purpose of this document is to provide recommendations and best practices for building a resilient and highly available Data Exchange Layer (DXL) communication fabric. The Data Exchange Layer is Intel Security’s architecture for enabling an adaptive security ecosystem. It is a low footpint, near real-time, bi-directional communications fabric allowing connected security components to share relevant data between endpoint, network, and other security systems. It allows for automated response, greatly reduced response time, and better containment.
This document also includes unique concerns and best practices for other DXL services like Threat Intelligence Exchange and others.
