GlobalPlatform Simplifies and Secures IoT Device Network Management With Free MUD File Service

  • 3 mths ago

Technical standards organization, GlobalPlatform has launched its free beta manufacturer usage description (MUD) File Service to simplify and secure IoT device network onboarding and management. The service helps manufacturers to easily share the intent, capabilities and requirements of their devices. With simple access to this information, network managers can automatically accept or reject access, to ensure devices can function effectively and securely. This will solve scalability issues in IoT, helping network managers to manage the rapidly growing number, and types, of IoT devices in their environments safely and efficiently.

“The deployment of IoT devices is increasing rapidly, along with the number of different device types, each of which has unique network access requirements,” said Tim Polk, Senior Computer Scientist, NIST. “To maintain security, it is vital that networks are able to distinguish device requirements to ensure the correct levels of access are given. We are excited to see industry-driven solutions like GlobalPlatform’s MUD File Service establish options for device makers and network managers looking to streamline connectivity while improving security.”
