What’s in the Box? Software Bill of Materials for IoT

NTIA is helping to lead the development of a software bill of materials, what we affectionately refer to as SBOM. When a hack or data breach occurs, SBOM could allow companies to quickly identify if their critical systems are affected. Our multistakeholder approach ensures that the process is collaborative and industry-driven. NTIA’s goal is to ensure that SBOM makes the software supply chain more transparent and more secure.

Last week, NTIA’s Director of Cybersecurity Initiatives Allan Friedman spoke before the RSA Conference on SBOM. You can watch his full remarks here to learn more about #SBOM and how it works: https://www.rsaconference.com/usa/agenda/whats-in-the-box-software-bill-of-materials-for-iot

May 4 marks the annual International Firefighters Day, which was first observed in 1999 after five firefighters died while trying to contain a wildfire in Victoria, Australia. It includes an international “Sound Off” on the first Sunday in May when, at noon local time each year, fire sirens will sound for 30 seconds worldwide followed by a minute of silence in memory of those who have died in the line of duty.

NTIA Finds IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal Meets Criteria to Complete Privatization

The U.S. Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced today that the proposal developed by the global Internet multistakeholder community meets the criteria NTIA outlined in March 2014 when it stated its intent to transition the U.S. Government’s stewardship role for the Internet domain name system (DNS) technical functions, known as the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions.

The announcement marks an important milestone in the U.S. Government’s effort to complete the transition of the Internet’s domain name system and ensure that the Internet remains a platform for innovation, economic growth, and free speech.

Here's the six-step process to building a broadband roadmap.

As local leaders take on the challenge of expanding broadband in their communities, NTIA is here to help. Our BroadbandUSA program is harnessing the expertise we gained overseeing the $4 billion in grants issued through the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP). Through technical assistance, regional workshops, guidance and resources, BroadbandUSA is building on the lessons learned from across our grant portfolio to support communities as they seek to build infrastructure, pursue public-private partnerships, or increase adoption.

Our efforts continue today with the release of a new toolkit called Planning a Community Broadband Roadmap. Read more about it here: http://www.ntia.doc.gov/blog/2016/broadbandusa-unveils-six-step-process-building-broadband-roadmap

You can also download the new toolkit and see our past publications on the BroadbandUSA website: http://www2.ntia.doc.gov/publications

Evolving Technologies Change the Nature of Internet Use

Americans’ rapid move toward mobile Internet service appears to be coming at the expense of home broadband connections, according to the latest computer and Internet use data released by NTIA. At the same time, many Americans are using a wider range of computing devices in their daily lives. Both of these findings suggest that technological changes are driving a profound shift in how Americans use the Internet, which may be opening a new digital divide based on the use of particular types of devices and Internet services. These results come from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Computer and Internet Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey (CPS), which includes data collected for NTIA in July 2015 from nearly 53,000 households.
