From the Security Ledger: NIST releases a draft framework for the Industrial Internet of Things

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released a draft framework that addresses security threats to cyber physical systems, including connected vehicles, wearable technology and “intelligent” buildings. The document is intended to help manufacturers create cyber physical systems that can interact with other applications and systems securely.

The Draft Framework for Cyber-Physical Systems (PDF here) was created by NIST’s cyber physical working group and published on September 18.

It is designed to be a common reference for engineers, product designers and testers, according to David Wollman, NIST’s Deputy Director of the Smart Grid and Cyber-Physical Systems Program Office. It is open for public comment for 45 days, according to a statement on the NIST website.
