NCCoE Releases Three Publications on Trusted Cloud and Hardware-Enabled Security
April 20, 2022

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) announces the release of three related publications on trusted cloud and hardware-enabled security. The foundation of any data center or edge computing security strategy should be securing the platform on which data and workloads will be executed and accessed. The physical platform represents the first layer for any layered security approach and provides the initial protections to help ensure that higher-layer security controls can be trusted.

Each of the reports below, NIST IR 8320B and NIST IR 8320C, are intended to be used as a blueprint or template that the general security community can use as example proof of concept implementations.

We Want to Hear from You!

Review the initial public draft of NIST IR 8320C and submit comments online on or before June 6, 2022. You can also contact us at We value and welcome your input and look forward to your comments.
