In a bid to help U.S. federal agencies protect sensitive, but unclassified information, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has updated guidelines for selecting and implementing cryptographic methods.
The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) reportedly plans to replace its method of scoring publicly disclosed vulnerabilities with a new automated process leveraging IBM’s Watson artificial intelligence system. The agency expects Watson to supplant its current Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) process for most bugs by October 2019, according to a report…
Three-quarters of the bugs listed in NIST's official vulnerability database for 2016-17 were previously exposed on the open, deep or dark web, before the U.S. agency had an opportunity to add those flaws to its records, according to new research.
The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued new recommendations to address system vulnerabilities, but Gartner warned today that this guidance does "not adequately reflect new threats and the evolving IT environment."
