DNS Security

Often referred to as the “phonebook of the Internet,” the Domain Name System (DNS) is a key network function that translates domain names (e.g., “atis.org”) to the device’s unique numerical IP addresses so that web browsers and other applications can load Internet resources. Because DNS is such a critical network function, its robustness and security are of profound importance. Important changes to the security of DNS protocols are now underway. These will have an impact on all organizations that offer DNS services or depend on features implemented in DNS. Almost all Internet applications rely on DNS to allow the client ...

Collaborative Cybersecurity for Connected Vehicles

What is a Collaborative Cybersecurity model, and what are its benefits? Why is one especially critical — particularly as it applies to semi- and fully autonomous vehicles? Collaborative Cybersecurity is an essential, disruptive, and logical model to enable the introduction of autonomous vehicles on our roads in the safest manner possible. All industries, and not just the vehicle original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), need to turn the current cybersecurity model on its head. Governments and commercial organizations alike need to rethink how cybersecurity should work for them to better position themselves against the growing number of threats. Cybersecurity companies who develop ...

Building an Economic Development Tool for Smart Communities

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) and US Ignite are now in the software design phase of building a new economic development tool for smart communities. This is part of our joint Smart City Data Exchange initiative, and our aim is to provide communities with the ability to see development potential in their neighborhoods on a property-by-property basis for the purpose of attracting commercial investment and fostering economic growth. The new data visualization tool is being developed on a Geographic Information System (GIS) based demographic map, and will use numerous datasets obtained both from open data portals and through our partnerships with ...

Do You Know What’s in Your Network? A Process-Driven Assessment of the Cybersecurity Risks that IoT Products and Services Present

The strong market for Internet of Things (IoT)-based products and services has resulted in a growing number of devices connected to the Internet. IoT applications are now being used not only in the home to monitor and control everyday appliances, but also for a variety of applications in the fields of industrial automation, healthcare, transportation and a host of other verticals. As these innovations increasingly touch our daily lives, the need for security is critical. Many of these products, services and devices are associated with third-party components and platforms. This creates the need for adequate security controls to ensure the ...
