NIST Launches Email Security Initiatives

CyberStockThe National Institute of Standards and Technology has launched two new projects to address email security threats.

NIST said Tuesday that it has published a draft document meant to suggest actions for responses to common email exploits such as the authentication of email domain names and encryption of email between sender and receiver.

The document also describes protocols to help protect end-user email security and privacy.

NIST will accept feedback for the draft document until Nov. 30.

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence also wants organizations to demonstrate email security products that use commercial software in an effort to establish a cybersecurity practice guide.
