The Mitigation Service is part of the Service tier and its aim is to retrieve information from the data layer, including for instance alerts or predictive analytics data, processes them and produces inputs for the Mitigation Enabler.
Communication and data exchange: accomplished through the data tier APIs.
The system is implemented in Python and the software is designed to communicate through hard-coded parameters relative to data exchange. FINSTIX objects are managed manually, for instance through JSON APIs.
More information on the Mitigation Service is available in the Securing Critical Infrastructures in the Financial Sector course.
