Network Security Working Group (NS-WG)

This group will work on issues relating to network authentication, and the authorizing and transfer of control from one device to another.

The Network Security Working Group works on a variety of AAA (Authentication/Authorization/Auditing) topics and collaborates on security aspects with other groups such as the DM-WG (BACnet Web Services) and the IT-WG (BACnet Secure Connect). In addition to protecting communications, the group’s scope also includes Auditing and Reporting mechanisms to track network actors and their actions.

This group was formed in January 2001, and is working on assessing the various threats to building automation and control systems and determining the appropriate countermeasures. If you are interested in participating in the work of this WG, please contact the convener.

Convener: Dave Robin, BSC Softworks
