Practical Use of the MUD Specification to Support Access Control in the IoT

Wednesday, February 26, 2020, 8:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m., Moscone South

The demand for internet-connected “smart” home and small business devices is growing rapidly, but so too are concerns regarding the potential compromise of these devices. During this session, the NCCoE's Parisa Grayeli and Blaine Mulugeta will discuss example implementations of a Manufacturer Usage Description (MUD) solution for cybersecurity attacks on IoT devices. These solutions are based on the Internet Engineering Task Force's MUD RFC 8520, and are detailed in the NCCoE's NIST SP 1800-15, Securing Small-Business and Home Internet of Things (IoT) Devices: Mitigating Network-Based Attacks Using Manufacturer Usage Description (MUD). Learn more about this session.

Birds of a Feather Sessions

Data Breach Response and Recovery

Wednesday, February 26, 2020, 1:30 p.m. - 2:20 p.m., Moscone West

The aftereffects of a data breach can send organizations reeling. By sharing experiences of handling data breaches, we can better understand the technical gaps that exist in today’s enterprises. Come and discuss with NCCoE's Michael Ekstrom what tools and technologies today’s security teams need to best meet today’s data confidentiality challenges. Attendance is strictly limited to allow for a small group experience. Learn more about this session.

 

Securing the Identity and Access Management Systems

Wednesday, February 26, 2020, 2:50 p.m. - 3:40 p.m., Moscone West

Breakthroughs were made in the financial services sector work in access rights management in support of the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence work program. What’s next? Securing the identity and access management systems. Come and discuss with NCCoE's Anne Townsend what tools and technologies today’s security teams need to best meet this challenge. Attendance is strictly limited to allow for a small group experience. Learn more about this session.
