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.

Dan Madrzykowski, National Institute of Standards and Technology

Homes and buildings aren't built the way they used to be, and when they catch fire, they don't burn the same way either. Newer buildings have more open floor plans and much more use of plastics and synthetic materials. Now the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Underwriters Laboratory have teamed up to educate firefighters on the modern fire. The course is based on a series of controlled burn experiments, performed with the help of the New York City Fire Department. Daniel Madrzykowski, a fire protection engineer and leader of the Fire Fighting Technology Group at NIST, told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp what firefighters learn through the course.

Steve Cauffman, lead for the Disaster Resilience Framework, NIST

The massive mudslide in Washington State is the most recent example of the need for resilience in the face of disaster. The National Institutes of Standards and Technology is launching the Disaster Resilience Initiative. It will help communities recover from the aftermath of natural disasters such as the mudslide or Superstorm Sandy, which struck New York and New Jersey in 2012. Steve Cauffman, lead for the Disaster Resilience Framework at NIST, spoke to Tom Temin on the Federal Drive about the initiative's expected impact.

NIST, DHS push for more engagement around cyber framework

Federal officials say they need help from Congress to ensure companies are protected under the law for sharing cyber information with the government. Officials also say building up the cyber workforce is a top concern.
