The Report identifies possible gaps in standards; for example, the application of blockchain in cryptographic techniques, the inability to use software patches to fix flaws in cyber incident management.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology in the US recently released an interagency report on cybersecurity for the Internet-of-Things (IoT).
The Interagency International Cybersecurity Standardization Working Group (IICS WG) was established in December 2015 by the National Security Council’s Cyber Interagency Policy Committee. The purpose of the IICS WG is to coordinate on major issues in international cybersecurity standardisation and thereby enhance U.S. federal agency participation in international cybersecurity standardization.
