New NIST Security Guidance Addresses Internet of Things

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has issued an update to a widely-used security and privacy guidebook that includes new sections applicable to the security of Internet of things devices.  “We are crafting the next-generation catalog of controls that can also be applied to secure the Internet of things,” said Ron Ross, a NIST fellow and leader of the task force that wrote the revisions to Special Publication (SP) 800-53, “Security and Privacy Controls for Information Systems and Organizations.”  Comments on the revisions are due Sept. 12.
