NIST - SP800-183 Networks of 'Things'

Organization: National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

Reference: SP800-183 Network of ‘Things’ [PDF]

Published on: July 2016

SP 800-183 offers an underlying and foundational understanding of the Internet of Things (IoT) based on the realization that IoT involves sensing, computing, communication, and actuation. The material presented here is generic to all distributed systems that employ IoT technologies (i.e., ‘things’ and networks). By having an understanding as to what IoT represents, building IoT-based systems and researching security and reliability concerns of IoT can be accelerated. SP 800-183 is targeted at computer scientists, IT managers, networking specialists, and networking and cloud computing software engineers who are seeking guidance into how best to leverage this new distributed computing paradigm. It also offers IT and software professionals with a common vocabulary from which discuss this technology.

I specialize in preventing and defeating the unthinkable – threats through which computers could turn people’s physical lives upside-down. From my start in law enforcement more than 25 years ago, I came to focus on emerging threats of cyber-kinetic attacks – cyberattacks on Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) that threaten people’s physical well-being, lives or the environment. Now, as a Partner in PwC, I bring this expertise to businesses to help them defeat these often-overlooked – but potentially deadly – hazards.
