The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) (http://ATIS.org) and TCG (https://trustedcomputinggroup.org) have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to advance information and communications technology (ICT) cybersecurity.
Under the new agreement, the two organizations will work together to create new cybersecurity specifications, guidance and best practices, with initial collaboration around network equipment security, mobile device security and related applications.
“The agreement with TCG is designed to further ATIS’ commitment to end-to-end cybersecurity,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. “Our larger vision is to integrate this work into our efforts that are transforming network-based security solutions.”
“Trusted computing and its specifications, including the international ISO standard Trusted Platform Module, Trusted Network Communications and others, are deployed in billions of devices to ensure integrity, protect against malware and other threats and secure data, devices and networks,” noted Ira McDonald, TCG Trusted Mobility Solutions Working Group co-chair. “Working with ATIS will enable us to further develop our specifications and drive additional adoption of them for cybersecurity.”
TCG currently offers a number of industry specifications, standards and guidance to using them, to protect data, devices and networks. These include guidance for using TCG standards to protect network equipment (https://trustedcomputinggroup.org/work-groups/network-equipment/), specifications for mobile device security (https://trustedcomputinggroup.org/work-groups/mobile/), and using trusted computing for embedded and IoT devices (https://trustedcomputinggroup.org/work-groups/internet-of-things/).
Membership in the Trusted Computing Group is your key to participating with fellow industry stakeholders in the quest to develop and promote trusted computing technologies.
Standards-based Trusted Computing technologies developed by TCG members now are deployed in enterprise systems, storage systems, networks, embedded systems, and mobile devices and can help secure cloud computing and virtualized systems.
Trusted Computing Group announced that its TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) Library Specification was approved as a formal international standard under ISO/IEC (the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission). TCG has 90+ specifications and guidance documents to help build a trusted computing environment.
