Read more about the program's contributions to NIST's response to E.O. 14028 on improving Consumer IoT cybersecurity.
Fostering cybersecurity for devices and data in the IoT ecosystem, across industry sectors and at scale
Now available: NIST's final recommendations for Cybersecurity features in Consumer IoT Products, NIST IR 8425: Profile of the IoT Core Baseline for Consumer Products! This IR is the culmination of over a year of stakeholder involvement that included 3 workshops, multiple rounds of comments, and many conversations with stakeholders.
Registration is now open for our June 22, 2022 virtual workshop: “Building on the NIST Foundations: Next Steps in IoT Cybersecurity”. We will have industry experts discussing consumer IoT cybersecurity requirements, the challenges of risk assessment for emergent use cases, and the role of standards for manufacturers and users of IoT devices and products.

NIST conducted a review of the pilot programs for cybersecurity labeling of consumer IoT products and consumer software products, consulting with the private sector and relevant agencies to assess the effectiveness of the programs, determining what improvements can be made going forward, and submitted a summary report on May 10, 2022, to the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (APNSA).
NIST’s Cybersecurity for the Internet of Things (IoT) program supports the development and application of standards, guidelines, and related tools to improve the cybersecurity of connected devices, products and the environments in which they are deployed. By collaborating with stakeholders across government, industry, international bodies, academia, and consumers, the program aims to cultivate trust and foster an environment that enables innovation on a global scale.
The IoT Cybersecurity Program charter was established at the end of 2016 with three overarching program goals.
Supports the development and application of standards, guidelines, and related tools to improve the cybersecurity of connected devices and the environments in which they are deployed.
Collaborate with stakeholders across government, industry, international bodies, and academia.
Cultivate trust and foster an environment that enable innovation on a global scale.
