Draft NISTIR 8200, Interagency Report on Status of International Cybersecurity Standardization for the Internet of Things (IoT) is out.
The Interagency International Cybersecurity Standardization Working Group (IICS WG) was established to coordinate on major issues in international cybersecurity standardization, as to enhance U.S. federal agency participation in international cybersecurity standardization.
Draft NISTIR 8200 is the result of this effort, a report to inform and enable policymakers, managers, and standards participants as they seek timely development and use of cybersecurity standards in IoT components, systems, and services.
This draft report:
• Provides a functional description for IoT
• Describes several IoT applications that are representative examples of IoT
• Summarizes the cybersecurity core areas and provides examples of relevant standards
• Describes IoT cybersecurity objectives, risks, and threats
• Provides an analysis of the standards landscape for IoT cybersecurity
• Maps IoT relevant cybersecurity standards to cybersecurity core areas
The report reflects information available from participating agencies, and the WG is seeking feedback to augment that information, especially on the information about the state of cybersecurity standardization for IoT.
Now it is time for users to respond to the draft by submitting comments by April 18, 2018.
