This group works to validate and protect the devices and connections on a network. The topics of group discourse are benefits, architectural references, and implementation of a zero trust architecture. In particular, we will use the SDP protocol as a reference to obtain zero trust.
During our meetings, we typically discuss changes in the industry and collaborate on projects the group is currently working on. We welcome anyone who would like to join, even if you would like to just listen in on any calls.
