NIST announces the public comment release of the draft NIST SP 800-164, Guidelines on Hardware-Rooted Security in Mobile Devices . The guidelines in this document are intended to provide a common baseline of security technologies that can be implemented across a wide range of mobile devices to help secure organization-issued mobile devices as well as devices brought into an organization, such as personally-owned devices used in enterprise environments (e.g., Bring Your Own Device, BYOD).   It focuses on providing three security capabilities- device integrity, isolation, and protected storage- through the use of hardware-based roots of trust. The intended audience for this document includes mobile Operating System (OS) vendors, device manufacturers, security software vendors, carriers, application software developers and information system security professionals who are responsible for managing the mobile devices in an enterprise environment.

NIST requests comments on draft NIST SP 800-164 by December 14th, 2012. Please submit all comments to 800-164comments@nist.gov.
