This document presents a model Code of Conduct (CoC) on botnet mitigation, which can be used by private parties as a self-regulatory instrument and/or by parties collaborating in Public-Private Partnerships. This model CoC was developed in the context of the BotLeg project, to facilitate public-private collaboration in the field of cybersecurity, in particular actions focused on preventing and combating botnets and infected machines.
This document comprises key components of a Code of Conduct, or statement of Best Practices, that participants can adopt in order to clarify their commitment to mitigating botnets and infected machines. The components can be reformulated, refined, and elaborated where desirable, for instance with a view to the specifics of a sector, jurisdiction, or type of organization in which the participants are active.
