Infographic: New SANS 20 Requirements for SSL/TLS Security and Management

Infographic: New SANS 20 Requirements for SSL/TLS Security and Management

October 15, 2015 | Gregory Webb

The SANS Institute, realizing the critical nature of security risks to SSL/TLS, has added several requirements related to SSL/TLS management to Critical Security Control 17: Data Protection. From recent vulnerabilities like Heartbleed, Shellshock, POODLE, and FREAK to the Sony and CHS breaches and other APT attacks, like APT 1 and APT 18, enterprises can no longer blindly trust SSL/TLS certificates.

This growing lack of blind trust in SSL/TLS certificates stems largely from corporate security teams’ failure to secure and manage their vast certificate and key populations properly. By following the new SANS 20 requirements for SSL/TLS certificate management, enterprises can regain trust in SSL/TSL and rely on it once again for secure communications, authentication, and authorization for applications, appliances, devices, and cloud services.
