Release Date: 02/23/2022
Organization: US DHS/CISA NSTAC
Content Type: Reports
The US President’s National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) report focuses on Zero Trust and Trusted Identity Management. Zero trust is a cybersecurity strategy premised on the idea that no user or asset is to be implicitly trusted. It assumes that a compromise has already occurred or will occur, and therefore, a user should not be granted access to sensitive information by a single verification done at the enterprise perimeter. Instead, each user, device, application, and transaction must be continually verified.
It is a key CSA ZT research source document.
