NIST IoT Guidance for Network-Based Attacks, Device Communication
Health IT Security
NIST unveiled guidance for small-sized enterprise networks and home users designed to mitigate network-based attacks using a standards-based approach to network communication and requiring IoT devices to only behave as the manufacturer intended.
The standards-based approach enables manufacturers to indicate device requirements for network communications to support the attack mitigation within the enterprise.
Manufacturer usage descriptions (MUD) lets the network automatically direct the IoT device to only send and receive traffic required for the device to perform as it was intended. NIST explained MUD prohibits...
