NIST Proposes Smart Card, Email Security Strategies

cybersecurityThe National Institute of Standards and Technology is seeking public comments on two agency-proposed cyber frameworks to help businesses secure emails and mobile-based personal identity verification credentials.

The NIST-run National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence wants to add the new cybersecurity building blocks to the center’s multi-industry use cases, the agency said Thursday.

NCCoE developed the “Domain Name System-Based Security for Electronic Mail” framework for companies to prevent unauthorized access to emails or use of these messages as a malware vector.

The “Derived Personal Identity Verification Credentials” document proposes a method to allow mobile device users to protect PIV smart cards through two-factor authentication.

Comments will be accepted until Aug. 14.
