Zero Trust Architecture and the Tactical Domain

Zero Trust Architectures and the Tactical Domain: A Round Peg in a Square Hole?

Paper Summary: The Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) has rapidly become the hottest topic in cybersecurity. However, we have noticed that today’s discussions inevitably focus on ZTA from the standpoint of the enterprise, ignoring the nuances and pitfalls of implementing ZTA in the tactical domain. Instead of driving the ZTA solely from the top-down, we see an operational benefit in constructing the enterprise ZTA from the bottom-up. This paper will delve into the potential issues with the industry’s current approach and introduce the solution from ZKX.

ZKX changes the security dynamic by building assurance in rather than bolting it on. By combining proven cryptography with novel, next-gen authentication factors, ZKX delivers a swift, robust, and reliable authentication solution to all echelons of the DoD.
