The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) will be joined by the following technology collaborators in the Trusted IoT Device Network-Layer Onboarding and Lifecycle Management Project:
- Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)
- Kudelski IOT
- NXP Semiconductors
- Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF)
- Sandelman Software Works
- Silicon Labs
These collaborators will work with the NCCoE to provide recommended practices for performing trusted network-layer onboarding, which will aid in the implementation and use of trusted onboarding solutions for IoT devices at scale. The project will result in a publicly available NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide in the Special Publication 1800 series, a detailed guide describing the practical steps needed to implement the cybersecurity reference designs.
Each of these organizations responded to a notice in the Federal Register to submit capabilities that aligned with desired solution characteristics for the project. The accepted collaborators were extended a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement, enabling them to participate in a consortium in which they will contribute expertise and hardware or software to help refine a reference design and build example standards-based solutions.
