The cybersecurity information exchange framework, known as CYBEX, is currently undergoing its first iteration of standardization efforts within ITU-T. The framework describes how cybersecurity information is exchanged between cybersecurity entities on a global scale and how the exchange is assured. The worldwide implementation of the framework will eventually minimize the disparate availability of cybersecurity information. This paper provides a specification overview, use cases, and the current status of CYBEX.
