NIST has released Draft NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-189, Secure Interdomain Traffic Exchange: Routing Robustness and DDoS Mitigation, which provides technical guidance and recommendations for deploying technologies that improve the security of interdomain traffic exchange. The document focuses on securing the interdomain routing control (i.e., Border Gateway Protocol) traffic as well as mitigating Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. It is intended to guide information security officers and managers of federal enterprise networks. The guidance also applies to the network services of hosting providers (e.g., cloud-based applications and service hosting) and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) when they are used to support federal IT systems. The guidance will also be useful for enterprise and transit network operators and equipment vendors
About | NIST |
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was founded in 1901 and is now part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. NIST is one of the nation's oldest physical science laboratories. Congress established the agency to remove a major challenge to U.S. industrial competitiveness at the time—a second-rate measurement infrastructure that lagged behind the capabilities of the United Kingdom, Germany, and other economic rivals.
