NIST Launches Investigation of Face Masks’ Effect on Face Recognition Software

Lun, 07/27/2020 - 14:00
Now that so many of us are covering our faces to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, how well do face recognition algorithms identify people wearing masks? The answer, according to a preliminary study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is with great difficulty. Even the best of the 89 commercial facial recognition algorithms tested had error rates between 5% and 50% in matching digitally applied face masks with photos of the same person without a mask. The results were published today as a NIST Interagency Report (NISTIR 8311), the first in a planned series from NIST

PSCR 2020: The Digital Experience

Lun, 07/27/2020 - 06:00
Since 2010, PSCR has held an annual Stakeholder Meeting to receive direct input, guidance, and feedback from public safety stakeholders across sectors. This information exchange has been invaluable to the success of the PSCR program and advancement of public safety communications technologies. That's why, in 2020, as part of our ongoing commitment to transparency, PSCR is developing a digital experience for sharing out yearly research updates. This new, virtual format will ensure stakeholders receive the cutting-edge updates they expect from PSCR delivered to wherever they are. When you claim

NIST’s Post-Quantum Cryptography Program Enters ‘Selection Round’

Mer, 07/22/2020 - 14:00
The race to protect sensitive electronic information against the threat of quantum computers has entered the home stretch. After spending more than three years examining new approaches to encryption and data protection that could defeat an assault from a quantum computer, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has winnowed the 69 submissions it initially received down to a final group of 15. NIST has now begun the third round of public review. This “selection round” will help the agency decide on the small subset of these algorithms that will form the core of the first post

Building the Federal Profile For IoT Device Cybersecurity: Next Steps for Securing Federal Systems

Mer, 07/22/2020 - 06:00
On July 22-23, NIST will host a virtual-only event, Building the Federal Profile For IoT Device Cybersecurity: Next Steps for Securing Federal Systems. NIST leveraged the Core Baseline established in NISTIR 8259A and analyzed the controls found in NIST SP 800-53 to develop a catalog of key IoT device cybersecurity capabilities and supporting non-technical manufacturer capabilities and associated IoT device customer controls. This catalog is a critical building block for establishing a federal profile of the Core Baseline (“Federal Profile”) to help government entities securely incorporate IoT

NIST Kick-Starts ‘Threshold Cryptography’ Development Effort

Mar, 07/07/2020 - 14:00
A new publication by cryptography experts at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) proposes the direction the technical agency will take to develop a more secure approach to encryption. This approach, called threshold cryptography, could overcome some of the limitations of conventional methods for protecting sensitive transactions and data. The document, released today in a final version as NIST Roadmap Toward Criteria for Threshold Schemes for Cryptographic Primitives (NISTIR 8214A), offers an outline for developing a new way to implement the cryptographic tools that

Foundational Cybersecurity Guidance for IoT Device Manufacturers: NISTIR 8259 Overview

NIST to Digital Forensics Experts: Show Us What You Got

Mar, 06/02/2020 - 14:00
Digital forensics experts often extract data from computers and mobile phones that may contain evidence of a crime. Now, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will conduct the first large-scale study to measure how well those experts do their job. But rather than testing the proficiency of individual experts, the study aims to measure the performance of the digital forensics community overall. In this study, to be conducted online, participants will examine simulated digital evidence, then answer questions that might arise in a real criminal investigation
