Experts say that one way to eliminate cybersecurity vulnerabilities is to build cyber defenses into the wide range of information technology devices that are rapidly becoming part of the "Internet of things". Baked-in cybersecurity is the goal of new draft guidelines recently proposed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. In this edition of "AFCEA Answers", Dr. Ron Ross, senior computer scientist and information security researcher with NIST, joins us to discuss SP 800-160, proposals which would mandate the design of cyber protection into the hardware and software of the next generation of IT products and services. Also, Dr. Ross discusses how SP 800-160 is part of the continuing work on the federal government's cybersecurity framework.
