The goal of the LCG/EGEE Security Service Challenge, is to ensure that appropriate communications channels are available, and to investigate whether sufficient information is available to be able to conduct an audit trace as part of an incident response.
Therefore a series of three SSCs with different foci have been run. In particular SSC1 addressed the job tracing capabilities.The focus of SSC2 was the tracing of storage operations. SSC3 finally is a realistic simulation of a security incident. The sites got an alert like: “Consider any activity from the following user as malicious. DN: ....”.

The SSC campaigns have shown to be an useful tool for the sites to check their
incident response capabilities and to use the results to improve them.

The SSC3 was meanwhile run twice (in 2008 and 2009). Here we will present the current results and compare them to the 2008 campaign.
