NIST invites organizations to provide products and technical expertise to support and demonstrate security platforms for the Secure Inter-Domain Routing Building Block. This notice is the initial step for the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) in collaborating with technology companies to address cybersecurity challenges identified under the Secure Inter-Domain Routing Building Block. Participation in the building block is open to all interested organizations.
Process: NIST is soliciting responses from all sources of relevant security capabilities to enter into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) to provide products and technical expertise to support and demonstrate security platforms for the Secure Inter-Domain Routing Building Block. Interested parties should contact NIST using the information provided in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of the Federal Register Notice.
Objective: The building block objective is to demonstrate means for improving inter-domain routing security. This project will result in a NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide (SP 1800-x)—a publicly available description of the solution and practical steps needed to implement practices that effectively demonstrate the security and functionality of Route Origin Validation (ROV).
