New National Cybersecurity CoE Project Focuses on Trusted IoT Device Onboarding Processes
NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has introduced a project that aims to present approaches to trusted network-layer onboarding processes and lifecycle management of internet of things (IoT) devices.

NIST said Thursday that NCCoE seeks to boost the security of network and internet protocol-based devices through the Trusted IoT Device Network-Layer Onboarding and Lifecycle Management initiative.

According to NIST, the lack of trusted IoT device onboarding processes renders networks and devices vulnerable to being controlled by networks that are not authorized to onboard them.

The center plans to use commercially available technology, which is designed to align with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, to create a trusted network-layer onboarding approach. The project is intended to deliver a publicly available NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide.
