US National Cybersecurity Center seeks comments on energy industry security scenarios
The US National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence is inviting industry to help address two information technology challenges faced by the energy sector. NCCoE would like feedback on two proposed ‘use cases’ whose solution would provide centralized control of access to structures and systems and reduce security blind spots in their operations.

The first proposed use case is focused on energy companies’ need to control physical and logical access to their resources, including buildings, equipment, information technology and industrial control systems. This requires the ability to authenticate identity with a high degree of certainty and to enforce access controls consistently, uniformly and quickly—and across all resources.

The second use case solution would allow security analysts to see operational and information technologies as a cohesive whole, making it easier for them to detect issues that could disrupt services.

Copies of the two proposed use cases can be viewed at http://csrc.nist.gov/nccoe/Projects/Energy.html. Comments on the proposed use cases should be submitted to energy_nccoe@nist.gov by Aug. 12, 2013
