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.
