AMI Named as a Collaborator in NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) 5G Cybersecurity Project

Wednesday: November 18, 2020

DULUTH, GEORGIA - AMI®, a global leader in powering, managing and securing the world's connected digital infrastructure through its BIOS, BMC and security solutions, is pleased to be named as a collaborator in the new NIST® National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) 5G Cybersecurity Project.

AMI joins an impressive roster of technology providers and industry experts to collaborate on the project - including AT&T, CableLabs, Cisco, Dell Inc., Intel, Keysight, MiTAC, Nokia, Palo Alto Networks and T-Mobile - as they work together with the NCCoE 5G team to identify several 5G use case scenarios and demonstrate how the components of the 5G architecture can provide security capabilities to mitigate identified risks and meet industry sectors' compliance requirements.

Through a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with NIST, these organizations will form a consortium in which they will each contribute their expertise and hardware or software to help refine a reference design and build example standards-based solutions. This project will result in a publicly available NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide in the Special Publication 1800 series, a detailed guide describing the practical steps needed to implement a cybersecurity reference design.

Sanjoy Maity, Chief Executive Officer of AMI, expressed his pleasure at the news by saying, "We are delighted to be a participant in the NCCoE 5G Cybersecurity project. This announcement once again highlights our deep commitment to security across all sectors of the compute, cloud and connected devices ecosystems. AMI looks forward to working together with the NIST team and this stellar group of industry leaders over the coming months to deliver the forthcoming NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide, which will help build a solid foundation of security best practices for the dawning era of 5G communications and give actionable, practical guidance and solutions to the industry as they design the next generation of networks and transform our world."

About the NIST National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence
The NCCoE is a collaborative hub where industry organizations, government agencies, and academic institutions work together to address businesses' most pressing cybersecurity issues. This public-private partnership enables the creation of practical cybersecurity solutions for specific industries, as well as for broad, cross-sector technology challenges. Through consortia under Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs), the NCCoE applies standards and best practices to develop modular, easily adaptable example cybersecurity solutions using commercially available technology. The NCCoE documents these example solutions in the NIST Special Publication 1800 series, which maps capabilities to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and details the steps needed for another entity to recreate the example solution.
