NIST Releases Cybersecurity White Paper: Planning for a Zero Trust Architecture
May 06, 2022

NIST announces the publication of a Cybersecurity White Paper (CSWP), Planning for a Zero Trust Architecture: A Guide for Federal Administrators, which describes processes for migrating to a zero trust architecture using the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF).

Zero trust is a set of principles designed to reduce or remove implicit trust in networked systems by addressing network identity, endpoint health, and data flows. This white paper helps system administrators and operators use the RMF when designing and implementing zero trust architecture by describing how the steps in the RMF map to similar steps described in NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-207, Zero Trust Architecture. The document also provides an abstract logical architecture on which to map gaps and solutions, as well as additional resources for federal agency administrators, planners, and managers.
