The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will host a virtual workshop to discuss compliance, operations, and security challenges with modern encrypted protocols on Thursday, August 13, 2020. Deployment of these protocols, in particular TLS 1.3, can impact some organizations ability to meet their regulatory, security, and operational requirements. The workshop will investigate the practical and implementable approaches to help those industries adopt them in their private data centers and the hybrid cloud without impacting regulatory compliance, security, or operations. Invitations will be extended to parties that submit brief descriptions of their interest in this topic.
The workshop will identify various approaches and practices to meet common compliance, operations, and security requirements. The findings from this workshop will inform the development of a potential National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) demonstration project to implement one or more of the proposed approaches while meeting the business use cases, the security capabilities, and supporting technologies.
