A new portal providing a one-stop source for IT security standards information has been launched in a move aimed at guiding users through the mass of European specifications and standards organisations.

The portal, called the ICT Security Standards Roadmap, is on the website of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the UN’s telecommunications agency.

The ITU said it was the first effort to create a repository of European network and information security standardisation efforts for security vendors, service
providers, developers and researchers.

The portal – parts of which are still under construction – lists specifications and standards organisations throughout Europe and will eventually detail 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.
