MITRE/ATARC Mobile White Paper

MITRE-ATARC Mobile Collaboration Symposium, August 12, 2015
Excerpt

Three key mobile topic areas:

  • Mobile App Vetting Tools & Trends
  • Mobile Pilot Challenges and Lessons Learned
  • Access Control Patterns for the Mobile Device World

Key recommendations to government:

  • OMB should provide agencies with clearer guidance on access control
    requirements, particularly in the area of “multi-factor” authentication
  • Government should continue to evaluate access control solutions that have
    proven effective in other sectors such as finance, and the potential to adopt
    out-of-the-box solutions that provide adequate security
  • Understand the challenges with modernizing legacy applications for mobile
    use
  • Capture best practices and lessons learned from agencies going through this
    process
