Security Congress Abstract
This presentation revolves around a cybersecurity architecture proposition, in alignment with Forrester’s ZTX architecture and Gartner’s CARTA, for securing applications and information assets hosted on a network. It's done using some key features of a software-defined perimeter framework and blockchain platform.
We'll discuss an attempt to define a security architecture through the following modules/functions:
-Blockchain-based identity and access management: The access management module creates and manages policies for providing Endpoints access to the resources, on least-privilege basis.
-Software-defined perimeter: An SDP controller verifies the single packet authorization and accordingly instructs SDP gateways to provide access control and micro-segmentation.
-Blockchain-based trust scoring: Blockchain keeps track of endpoint trust scores, which serve as feedback to the SDP gateway to take necessary corrective actions on the fly.
