NIST is working with the Internet industry to design, standardize and foster deployment of technologies to improve the security and robustness of enterprise networks and the core Internet technologies upon which they relay. The High Assurance Domains (HAD) project is currently focused on (1) the Domain Name System (DNS) is the ubiquitous naming infrastructure for the global Internet; (2) enterprise electronic mail systems; and (3) Zero Trust Network architecture.
The objectives of NIST’s High Assurance Domains (HAD) project are to design, standardize and foster wide scale adoption of technologies to improve the security, robustness and privacy of the Internet’s Domain Name System. A second dimension of the NIST’s effort is to explore ways to leverage a trustworthy global naming service to address other issues in Internet security and scalable trust infrastructures.
