NIST invites comments on guidance for zero trust architecture network strategies

The US NIST is inviting comments on Draft Special Publication (SP) 800-207, Zero Trust Architecture, which discusses the core logical components that make up a zero trust architecture (ZTA) network strategy.

According to NIST, zero trust ‘refers to an evolving set of network security paradigms that narrows defenses from wide network perimeters to individuals or small groups of resources’. Its focus on protecting resources rather than network segments is a response to enterprise trends that include remote users and cloud-based assets that are not located within an enterprise-owned network boundary.

(SP) 800-207 establishes an abstract definition of ZTA as well as general deployment models, use cases where ZTA could improve an enterprise’s overall IT security posture, and a high-level roadmap to implementing a ZTA approach for an enterprise.

The deadline for comments is November 22, 2019.
