    Hi All,

    NIST has issued for comment NISTIR 8323, Cybersecurity Profile for the Responsible Use of Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) Services

    The PNT cybersecurity profile is part of NIST's response to Feb. 12, 2020, Executive Order 13905, Strengthening National Resilience Through Responsible Use of Positioning, Navigation, and Timing Services. The order notes that "the widespread adoption of PNT services means disruption or manipulation of these services could adversely affect U.S. national and economic security. To strengthen national resilience, the Federal Government must foster the responsible use of PNT services by critical infrastructure owners and operators."

    NIST has developed this PNT cybersecurity profile to help organizations identify systems, networks, and assets dependent on PNT services; identify appropriate PNT services; detect the disruption and manipulation of PNT services; and manage the associated risks to the systems, networks, and assets dependent on PNT services. This profile will help organizations make deliberate, risk-informed decisions on their use of PNT services.
