CISA Opens Internet Security Guide Draft to Public


The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has released the draft of an updated internet security guide that was shaped with respect to the progression of technology.

The new Trusted Internet Connections 3.0 draft takes cloud computing, mobile device and encryption standards into consideration, Matt Hartman, director of network resilience at CISA, said in a blog post published Friday.

The draft features five different parts: program guidebook, reference architecture, security capabilities handbook, use case handbook and service provider overlay handbook.

The first section describes the TIC program's modernized form and the second section provides guidance on internet security implementation.

The third highlights TIC-related security applications and the fourth lists down technical requirements for different use cases. The final part correlates different service provider functions with TIC applications.

Interested parties may submit comments on the draft to CISA or GitHub from Dec. 23 through Jan. 31. CISA will also host webinars to inform interested parties during this period.
