IETF introduces manufacturer usage descriptions to help secure IoT devices

15 Mar 2019

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has introduced manufacturer usage descriptions (MUD) which provides the basic framework to allow manufacturers to provide policy that can be used to generate IP-based access lists.

MUD is realised as RFC 8520.
