Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) and Zero Trust
Release Date: 05/27/2020
Working Group: SDP and Zero Trust
A Zero Trust implementation using Software-Defined Perimeter enables organizations to defend new variations of old attack methods that are constantly surfacing in existing network and infrastructure perimeter-centric networking models. Implementing SDP improves the security posture of businesses facing the challenge of continuously adapting to expanding attack surfaces that are increasingly more complex. This paper will show how SDP can be used to implement ZTNs and why SDP is applied to network connectivity, meaning it is agnostic of the underlying IP-based infrastructure and hones in on securing all connections using said infrastructure - it is the best architecture for achieving Zero Trust.
