3 Importance of ICT security standardization (1/4) National laws are oftentimes inadequate to protect against attacks. They are insufficient from the timing perspective (i.e. laws cannot keep up with the pace of technological change), and, since attacks are often transnational, national laws may well be inapplicable anyway. What this means is that the defenses must be largely technical, procedural and administrative; i.e. those that can be addressed in standards. The development of standards in an open forum that comprises international specialists from a wide variety of environments and backgrounds provides the best possible opportunity to ensure relevant, complete and effective standards. SG 17 provides the environment in which such standards can be, and are being, developed. 3/51

4 Importance of ICT security standardization (2/4) The primary challenges are the time it takes to develop a standard (compared to the speed of technological change and the emergence of new threats) and the shortage of skilled and available resources. We must work quickly to respond to the rapidly-evolving technical and threat environment but we must also ensure that the standards we produce are given sufficient consideration and review to ensure that they are complete and effective. We must recognize and respect the differences in developing countries respective environments: their telecom infrastructures may be at different levels of development from those of the developed countries; their ability to participate in, and contribute directly to the security standards work may be limited by economic and other considerations; and their needs and priorities may be quite different. 4/51

5 Importance of ICT security standardization (3/4) ITU-T can help the developing countries by fostering awareness of the work we are doing (and why we are doing it), by encouraging participation in the work particularly via the electronic communication facilities now being used (e.g. web based meetings and teleconferencing), and, most particularly, by encouraging the members from the developing countries to articulate their concerns and priorities regarding the ICT security. The members from the developed nations should not confuse their own needs with those of the developing countries, nor should they make assumptions about what the needs and priorities of the developing countries may be. 5/51

6 Importance of ICT security standardization (4/4) For on-going credibility, we need performance measures that provide some indication of the effectiveness of our standards. In the past there has been too much focus on quantity (i.e. how many standards are produced) than on the quality and effectiveness of the work. Going forward, we really need to know which standards are being used (and which are not being used), how widely they are used, and how effective they are. This is not going to be easy to determine but it would do much more to the ITU-Ts credibility if it could demonstrate the value and effectiveness of standards that have been developed rather than simply saying we produced X number of standards. The number of standards produced is irrelevant: what counts is the impact they have. 6/51

12 Study Group 17 Overview Primary focus is to build confidence and security in the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) Meets twice a year. Last meeting had 171 participants from 21 Member States, 20 Sector Members and 7 Associates. As of 16 October 2011, SG 17 is responsible for 279 approved Recommendations, 11 approved Supplements and 3 approved Implementers Guides in the E, F, X and Z series. Large program of work: 23 new work items added to work program in Recommendations, 22 Corrigenda and 3 Supplements approved or entered approval process in new or revised Recommendations and other texts are under development for approval in 2012 or later Work organized into 3 Working Parties with 15 Questions 5 Correspondence groups See SG 17 web page for more information 12/51

14 Study Group 17 is the Lead Study Group on: Telecommunication security Identity management (IdM) Languages and description techniques A study group may be designated by WTSA or TSAG as the lead study group for ITU T studies forming a defined programme of work involving a number of study groups. This lead study group is responsible for the study of the appropriate core Questions. In addition, in consultation with the relevant study groups and in collaboration, where appropriate, with other standards bodies, the lead study group has the responsibility to define and maintain the overall framework and to coordinate, assign (recognizing the mandates of the study groups) and prioritize the studies to be carried out by the study groups, and to ensure the preparation of consistent, complete and timely Recommendations. * Extracted from WTSA-08 Resolution 1 14/51

15 SG 17 is Parent for Joint Coordination Activities (JCAs) on: Identity management Conformance & interoperability testing A joint coordination activity (JCA) is a tool for management of the work programme of ITU-T when there is a need to address a broad subject covering the area of competence of more than one study group. A JCA may help to coordinate the planned work effort in terms of subject matter, time-frames for meetings, collocated meetings where necessary and publication goals including, where appropriate, release planning of the resulting Recommendations. The establishment of a JCA aims mainly at improving coordination and planning. The work itself will continue to be conducted by the relevant study groups and the results are subject to the normal approval processes within each study group. A JCA may identify technical and strategic issues within the scope of its coordination role, but will not perform technical studies nor write Recommendations. A JCA may also address coordination of activities with recognized standards development organizations (SDOs) and forums, including periodic discussion of work plans and schedules of deliverables. The study groups take JCA suggestions into consideration as they carry out their work. * Extracted from Recommendation ITU-T A.1 15/51

39 Question 12/17 (cntd) Definition and encoding of structured data This is what ASN.1 has always been about, since about 1984, but the terminology is fairly recent. A Tutorial on this topic, giving history and comparisons of different approaches will be given at the Feb 2012 SG 17 meeting, and will be available as a TD shortly before the meeting. ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One) – is just another way of saying description of structured data, and its notation and its encoding rules have been the primary ITU-T recommended means for describing and encoding structured data since about It is not appropriate to describe this further here, but Q12/17 is actively promoting the term description and encoding of structured data as what ASN.1 is actually about and continues to recommend it for all use by ITU-T Recommendations in all Study Groups with such requirements. Q12/17 is always prepared to provide assistance to other Study Groups in this area. 39/51
