Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Turns to Zero Trust in Addressing Cybersecurity

The federal government is collaborating with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to protect the nation from cyberthreats.

Researchers at the facility have been involved in better understanding zero trust to help protect critical infrastructure from cyber actors wanting to cause damage to the U.S. economy and national security.

PNNL has turned to zero trust principles to address cybersecurity concerns as it allows organizations to use authentication at different points between networks that have yet to be securely connected, Federal News Network reported.

Elena Peterson, a senior cybersecurity researcher at PNNL, said the laboratory continues to develop new solutions as malware continues to get smarter by the day. She added that work will not end as computers get better and faster and networks get better and faster.

With zero trust gaining increased attention due to the benefits it offers, more organizations are offering solutions designed for government or military use. The Veterans Cybersecurity Group has launched its Zero Trust Proving Ground, allowing agencies to test and assess zero trust architecture strategies.
