Aligning Identity with Zero Trust

Combined Session

Applying Zero Trust to Humans and Things

The pandemic has dramatically changed how we work, shop, meet and learn. Simple username and password credentials can no longer be part of this new world.

Connected IoT things are for the first time outnumbering non IoT connections such as Tablet, Phones and PCs and many emerging business models will drive more revenue through IoT-enabled services than the products through which they’re delivered. Applying zero trust thinking to all identities including connected things and not just employees and their PCs is therefore a concept organisations will need look into to ensure adequate security measures for their employees and things.

Using Identity in a Zero Trust Architecture

Zero trust requires an enterprise to identify and monitor all the network identities used in the enterprise. NIST SP 800-207 refers to a zero trust deployment pattern called “enhanced identity governance”. The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has a project on implementing a zero trust architecture that will include enhanced identity governance. This talk will be an overview of the role of network identities in zero trust and the current status of the NCCoE project.
