AMI Selected to Join the NIST National Cybersecurity Excellence Partnership at the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence

The NCCoE is a collaborative hub where industry organizations, government agencies, and academic institutions work together to address businesses’ most pressing cybersecurity issues. This public-private partnership enables the creation of practical cybersecurity solutions for specific industries, as well as for broad, cross-sector technology challenges. Through consortia under Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs), the NCCoE applies standards and best practices to develop modular, easily adaptable example cybersecurity solutions using commercially available technology. The NCCoE documents these example solutions in the NIST Special Publication 1800 series, which maps capabilities to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and details the steps needed for another entity to recreate the example solution.

As part of its engagement with NCCoE, a team of security firmware engineers from AMI will pay a visit to the NIST Security Research Lab. There, the AMI team will integrate AMI firmware into real-world, end-to-end solutions to be tested for heuristic and predictive failure analysis, encryption algorithms, ethical hacking and related security tests. Once complete, the test results will be available through the NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide (Special Publication 1800 series).
