The public comment period has closed for the cybersecurity paper titled Methodology for Characterizing Network Behavior of Internet of Things Devices. Thank you to everyone who shared their feedback with us. We are currently reviewing the comments received.
The goal is to demonstrate how to use device characterization techniques to describe the communication requirements of IoT devices. This publication focuses on the capture of network communications involving IoT devices necessary to generate MUD files. MUD provides a standard way to specify the network communications that a device requires to perform its intended function. The methodology seeks to allow for analysis of the full range of IoT device network traffic behaviors that can reasonably be expected. This includes examining a variety of factors that could potentially alter an IoT device’s behavior at each stage of the device’s lifecycle.

A Companion Tool
NCCoE created a tool called MUD-PD for characterizing IoT devices particularly for use with MUD.
