Planning for a Zero Trust Architecture: Draft Cybersecurity White Paper Available for Comment
August 04, 2021

NIST announces the release of a new draft cybersecurity white paper – Planning for a Zero Trust Architecture: A Starting Guide for Administrators, which provides a high-level overview of the NIST Risk Management Framework (NIST RMF) and how it can help in developing and implementing a zero trust architecture.

Zero trust is a set of cybersecurity principles used by stakeholders to plan and implement an enterprise architecture. Since some of these stakeholders may not be familiar with risk analysis and management, the NIST RMF provides a common set of concepts and tasks to both security planners and system operators.

The public comment period is open through September 3, 2021. See the publication details for a copy of the draft and instructions for submitting comments.
