Transport and Security Standards Workgroup

The Transport and Security Standards Workgroup supported standards for security and transport in certification criteria and supported alignment with the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC). Some examples included: securing data at rest, security for application programming interfaces and RESTful approaches that support modular application integration, data segmentation for privacy, and digital signature.
