ITU has developed an online tool to track crucial ICT security standards work through a single access point. The guide called the ICT Security Standards Roadmap brings together information about existing standards and work in progress by the world's key standards developers.
ITU, the European Network and Security Information Agency (ENISA), and the Network and Information Security Steering Group (NISSG) have taken this initiative. This is the first time that ICT security vendors, service providers, developers, researchers, and the public, will now have security standards with one common user interface. The guide provides information for potential users of security standards and other stakeholders to gain an understanding of what standards are available or under development as well as the key organizations that are working in the area. This web-based tool also lists standards-development organizations and the security standards they publish. It enables the identification of standards and standards activities, as well as fosters coordination among standardization bodies, reducing duplication of effort, and making it easier to identify existing gaps.
