The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued a draft special publication that seeks to demonstrate how organizations can use standards-based, commercially available products to help meet their privacy and security needs as they adopt the bring your own device practice.
The draft SP 1800-22 Mobile Device Security: Bring Your Own Device practice guide is intended to help organizations use industry best practices to improve mobile device security and privacy; enhance visibility into mobile device health; and improve the security of mobile devices and applications through the deployment of several technologies, NIST said Thursday.
“This practice guide provides an example solution demonstrating how to enhance security and privacy in Android and Apple smartphone BYOD deployments,” the notice reads.
The draft publication also describes several technologies that support the example platform’s security and privacy goals, including trusted execution environment, enterprise mobility management, virtual private network and mobile application vetting service.
NIST will accept feedback and comments on the draft practice guide through May 3rd.
