NCCoE Releases Draft Zero Trust Architecture Project Description


The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has released new draft project description Implementing a Zero Trust Architecture. Publication of this project description begins a process to further identify project requirements, scope, and hardware and software components for use in a laboratory environment.

In the laboratory, the NCCoE will build a modular, example zero trust architecture(s) using commercially available technology, which will address a set of cybersecurity challenges aligned to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework. The project will result in a freely available NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide that documents an approach to building a zero trust architecture according to the principles and tenets set out in NIST Special Publication 800-207, Zero Trust Architecture.
