New NIST draft practice guide, SP 1800-15, “Securing Small-Business and Home Internet of Things (IoT) Devices

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has published a preliminary draft practice guide, SP 1800-15, “Securing Small-Business and Home Internet of Things (IoT) Devices: Mitigating Network-Based Attacks Using Manufacturer Usage Description (MUD),” and is seeking public comments. The popularity of IoT devices is growing rapidly, as are concerns over their security. IoT devices are often vulnerable to malicious actors who can exploit them directly and use them to conduct network-based attacks. SP 1800-15 describes for IoT product developers and implementers an approach that uses MUD to automatically limit IoT devices to sending and receiving only the traffic that they require to perform their intended functions.

We will use this feedback to help shape the next version of this document.
