Pentagon to Launch 'Zero Trust' Cybersecurity Office in December Due to SolarWinds Attack

Zero trust assumes that there is no trust between networks, devices, or users, and therefore necessitates constant, real-time verification of data accessing users. It is a shift from perimeter-based security, in which an intruder can typically travel freely within a network once they've gained access.

US media reported last month that the hackers behind the SolarWinds intrusion attempted to access US government networks, as well as European government networks.

Pentagon believes that "zero trust is the only solution out there right now that gives us a fighting chance on detecting these folks that may have a foothold on our network or this anomalous software that we’ve allowed in."
