U.S. Cyber Trust Mark

Today (July 18, 2023) the White House announced a proposed voluntary cybersecurity certification and labeling program and the U.S. Cyber Trust Mark for smart devices. 

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) intends the use of a QR code linking to a registry of certified devices and giving specific security information about the smart device. Working with other regulators and the U.S. Department of Justice the Commission plans to establish oversight and enforcement safeguards to maintain the trust and confidence in the program.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will immediately undertake efforts to define cybersecurity standards for consumer grade routers, a high-risk type of product. This work is to be completed by the end of 2023.

The U.S. Department of Energy announced a collaborative effort with National Labs and industry partners to research and develop cybersecurity labeling requirements for smart meters and power inverters.

The U.S. Department of State will support the FCC to engage allies and partners toward the harmonization of standards and pursue mutual recognition of similar labeling efforts.
