NIST Asks for Energy Sector IIoT Security Products, Services
Wednesday, October 09, 2019 | Comments

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invited organizations to provide products and technical expertise to support and demonstrate security platforms for securing the industrial internet of things (IIoT) for the energy sector use case. This notice is the initial step for the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) in collaborating with technology companies to address cybersecurity challenges identified under the energy sector program.

Participation in the use case is open to all interested organizations. Collaborative activities will begin as soon as enough completed and signed letters of interest have been returned to address all the necessary components and capabilities, but no earlier than Nov. 7.

The objective of this use case is to provide an architecture that can be referenced and develop guidance for securing IIoT in commercial- and/or utility-scale distributed energy resource (DER) environments, and to include an example solution that uses existing, commercially available and/or open-source cybersecurity products.
