Europe launches portal for IT security standards

A portal launched on Thursday details European ITsecurity specifications and standards organizations.

The web of IT security specifications and standards organizations in Europe may become a bit clearer with a new portal that provides a one-stop source for standards information.

The portal, called the ICT Security Standards Roadmap, lies within the Web site of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the telecommunications agency of the United Nations.

It is the first effort to create a repository for network and information security standardization efforts in Europe for security vendors, service providers, developers and researchers, according to the ITU.

The portal -- parts of which are still under construction -- lists standards organizations throughout Europe and specifications and will eventually detail ongoing projects between different standards bodies.

Contributors to the portal include the European Network and Information Security Agency and the Network and Information Security Steering Group, part of the ICT Standards Board.
