NIST Seeking Comments | Draft Criteria for Labelling Program on Capabilities of IoT Devices


NIST is seeking comments by October 17, 2021, on draft criteria for a labelling program on the cybersecurity capabilities of Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

This effort is part of an initiative assigned to NIST under the Presidential Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity (14028) issued May 12, 2021. It aims to identify the key elements and desired outcomes of a labelling program rather than establish a new one, and the draft criteria suggest potential baseline security measures for IoT devices.

virtual public workshop looking at the challenges and practical approaches regarding both consumer IoT and software labelling – will be held September 14-15, 2021. It will include panel discussions and presentations based on consumer software labelling position papers and preliminary feedback on the potential baseline security criteria for IoT devices. The workshop requires advanced registration and is free of charge. Register by September 13, 2021.
