International body adopts network security standard

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) approved last month a comprehensive model that identifies critical requirements to ensure end-to-end network security.Specifically, the global standards group formally adopted ISO/IEC 18028-2, which defines a standard security architecture and provides a systematic approach to support the planning, design and implementation of information technology networks.

The standard is based on X.805, a framework Bell Labs created several years ago. The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), another standards body, adopted it before ISO.
