Tom Karygiannis, National Institute of Standards and Technology

It seems like the whole world is going mobile, and that includes the federal government. Agencies are using more and more apps for collaboration and productivity. But some apps increase the potential for exposing government data. To help you guard against these security risks, the National Institute of Standards and Technology is providing tips to the federal community for vetting third-party apps. Computer Scientist, Tom Karygiannis, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the guidelines.

NSA revamps processes to more quickly approve commercial technology

The National Information Assurance Partnership, the U.S. implementation of what was supposed to be a faster, cheaper process to verify the cybersecurity of commercial IT products, turned out to be so slow and expensive that few companies could afford to go through it. But officials said they hope a recent overhaul in the procedures will breathe new life into the program.

Baked-in cybersecurity goodness

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.

NIST releases guide to mobile forensics

The latest guide to mobile forensics from the National Institute of Standards and Technology adds hundreds of new tools for investigators to find and collect information from a mobile device. The additions come seven years after NIST first published its Guidelines on Mobile Device Forensics. To give some context, that guide came out BEFORE Apple released the first iPhone. The guide includes as many ways to keep a phone running when it has low battery to save as much data as possible. NIST plans to publish the final version later this year.

Jon Boyens, National Institute of Standards and Technology

It keeps getting easier to manufacture a counterfeit computer chip. Experts say federal information systems increasingly are at risk because of flaws in their supply chains. It is not just a question of fake parts. Genuine ones that have been tampered with, or are just poorly made, can cause damage. The National Institute of Standards and Technology is revising guidelines for agencies to help them secure their supply chains. Jon Boyens is an IT specialist in the security outreach and integration group at NIST. He spoke with Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive.

Ron Ross, Computer Scientist, NIST

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has launched a four-part plan to help agencies build more secure IT systems. NIST Computer Scientist Ron Ross, who guided a new publication on the issue, tells the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp that the same engineering principles that apply to bridges and buildings should apply to IT. That is, security should be built in, not added later.
