-//Mentat// is designed as a distributed modular system with the emphasis on security, extendability and scalability. The core of the system is implemented similarly to the [[http://​www.postfix.org/​|Postfix MTA]]. It consists of many simple modules/​daemons,​ each of is responsible for performing a particular ‘simple’ task. This approach enables smooth parallelization and extendability. All modules use the same core service framework, which makes implementing new modules an easy task.

Instead it relies on the services of [[https://​warden.cesnet.cz/​en/​index|Warden]] security information exchange platform.
  
-Currently, the working prototype of the //Mentat// system is being operated successfully. It accepts events from many internal and external sources. The system processes approximately 2 million events per day. The crucial and most apparent component of the entire system is an automatic reporter module which distributes information about security incidents directly to the responsible administrators within the [[https://​www.cesnet.cz/​services/​ip-connectivity-ip/​cesnet2-network/?​lang=en|CESNET2]] network (//​AS2852//​).+Currently, the working prototype of the //Mentat// system is being operated successfully ​as a service for customers and partners of [[https://​www.cesnet.cz/?​lang=en|CESNET,​ a.l.e.]].
