Today, we’re witnessing a big step forward in this effort. The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) – part of the Federal government’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) – is releasing a draft NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide SP 1800-3, demonstrating the use of Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC).
With this game-changing access security “building block” organizations can evolve their IT infrastructure away from the binary, less effective, and less secure role-based access methodology. If you’re not familiar with the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, it might be time to take a look. The NCCoE is an innovative forum where the public and private sectors collaborate to demonstrate practical solutions to real-world security problems facing businesses. RSA has been a proud partner of the NCCoE from shortly after its foundation.
