An Initial public draft for IT systems’ security guidelines was offered this week by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The publication proposes guidelines that are implemented at every level of IT systems.

The document, “Systems Security Engineering: An Integrated Approach to Building Trustworthy Resilient Systems,” said that it is addressing the engineering actions needed “for developing a more defensible and survivable information technology structure.”

“We need to have the same confidence in the trustworthiness of our IT products and systems that we have in the bridges we drive across or the airplanes we fly in,” said NIST fellow Ron Ross in a statement. He added that civil engineers employ principles of physics and engineering when they build, say, bridges, and, similarly, systems security engineering processes can be employed to produce trustworthy IT components and systems, using scientific and engineering principles.

International Standards It utilises international standards for systems and software engineering from the International Organisation for Standardisation, the International Electrotechnical Commission, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.

Eleven core systems processes for developing IT systems/software are addressed, with security recommendations for each process.
