NCCoE Learning Series Project Deep Dive: Implementing a Zero Trust Architecture

Event Description:

Our June NCCoE Learning Series webinar will introduce attendees to the Implementing a Zero Trust Architecture project. The NCCoE initiated this project in collaboration with industry participants to demonstrate several deployment approaches to a zero trust architecture applied to a conventional, general purpose enterprise information technology (IT) infrastructure on-premises and in the cloud, which will be designed and deployed according to the concepts and tenets documented in NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-207, Zero Trust Architecture. The example implementations will integrate commercial and open-source products that leverage cybersecurity standards and recommended practices to showcase the robust security features of zero trust architectures.  

This project will result in a NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide, a publicly available description of the findings and practical steps needed to implement the example solutions in support of the cybersecurity reference designs for zero trust. 

During this webinar, attendees will:

  • Meet the project team
  • Get an overview of the project’s goals and current status
  • Review the current high level project architecture
  • Learn how the project team is engaging with the private sector to demonstrate zero trust architectures
  • Engage in Q&A with the project team


  • Alper Kerman (NIST), security engineer and project manager at the NCCoE. Technical lead and project manager for zero trust
  • Scott Rose (NIST), computer scientist, Wireless Networks Division, Communications Technology Laboratory
