NIST Issues Draft Guidance to Reduce Risks in IoT Product Adoptions

1 min read

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has released a draft report that provides recommendations on mitigating technical trust-related concerns that may affect the adoption of Internet-of-Things products and services.

NIST said Monday the document identifies 17 possible issues related to the performance and credibility of IoT systems, as well as offers additional research areas on IoT trust.

The 17 trust concerns identified in the draft report are based on six trustworthiness elements defined in NIST Special Publication 800-183, which provides information on IoT based on the discovery of the technology’s sensing, computing, communication and actuation capabilities. 

The agency intends to inform managers, supervisors, technical staff and entities involved in IoT policy decisions, government and procurement about what to consider when acquiring an IoT product or service.

NIST will accept public feedback on the draft guidance until Nov. 5.
