X.1542 (ex X.simef)Session information message exchange formatIn today's network environment, computer networks are vulnerable to threats from both inside and outside the organization. The firewall systems log session information about selected incoming and outgoing transmission control protocol/Internet protocol (TCP/IP) connections. However, those systems that are currently available are not generally interoperable because each system has its own special functionality, control mechanisms and session log formats. The need most security administrators face today is the maintaining of consistent session information exchange format across diverse firewall systems and even varied infrastructures. Recommendation ITU-T X.1542 (X.simef) describes the information model for the session information message exchange format (SIMEF) and provides an associated data model specified with extensible markup language (XML) schema. The SIMEF defines a data model representation for sharing the transport layer session log information regarding the centralized network security management and security information exchange system. The specification of any transport protocol is beyond the scope of this Recommendation.
X.cogentDesign considerations for improved end-user perception of trustworthiness indicatorsDiverse kinds of attacks employ replicated contents from trustworthy service providers, thereby deceiving end-users into believing its false trustworthiness. Recommendation ITU-T X.cogent describes design consideration for improved end-user perception of trustworthiness indicators. The appendix describes representative techniques for measuring end-user perception of such indicators.
X.metricMetrics for evaluating threat and resilience in cyberspaceRecommendation ITU-T X.metric describes possible quantification methods for threats and associated resilience mechanisms, along with applicable normalization methods, as well as discretization and simplification methods.

Recommendation ITU-T X.cspim identifies characteristics of instant messaging spam (SPIM) and then specifies technical requirements for countering instant messaging spam.
X.gcspiITU-T X.1242 - Supplement on Guidelines on countermeasures against short message service (SMS) phishing and smishing attackShort message service (SMS) phishing is a fraudulent technique through mobile phones by causing phishing frauds with smartphones, acquiring personal information on the smartphones, or by enabling small amounts of money to be approved and paid while the account holder is not aware of the approval. The purpose of this supplement to Rec. ITU-T X.1242 is to universalize the guideline for countermeasures against SMS phishing incident by defining a security guideline about security technology against SMS phishing incident and method, and specification of report contents.
X.tfcmaTechnical framework for countering mobile in-application advertising spamMobile in-application advertising spam is the unsolicited advertisement displayed within a mobile phone application. It can be shown on the display units such as banner at the top or bottom of the screen, mobile interstitial, overlay and so on. With the fast development of mobile application, mobile in-application advertisement has been developing dramatically. Filtering unwanted or malicious advertisements is often incomplete. Although many countermeasures have been proposed and implemented, they all suffer from theoretical limitations and drawbacks, and we still face in practice a high volume and a high portion of mobile in-application advertising spam. Therefore, it is necessary to establish a practical framework for countering mobile in-application advertising spam, which can reasonably integrate all the advantages of countermeasures. Recommendation ITU-T X.tfcma provides a technical framework for countering mobile in-application advertising spam.
