The National Center for Communication Security (NCCS) under the direction of the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) last week issued a notice seeking holders to provide inputs on the security test outline document for set-top box (STB) devices. NCCS has started working on the development of security test requirements after a reference from its parent organization DoT.

Security Assurance Standards (SAS) division under NCCS responsible for drafting and finalising ITSARs for communication equipment is looking to hold industry consultation and seek participation from willing organisations for the development of security test requirements for STB. The meeting set to be held later this month will kick start the development work of Indian Telecom Security Assurance Requirements (!TSAR) for STB devices.

NCCS has invited inputs on general questions, privacy-related questions, and STB security. The draft ITSAR has also invited comments on the applicability of certain security provisions in STB devices.

The purpose of consultation for STB security outline document is to seek inputs/comments/suggestions from all stakeholders viz., Regulatory bodies/ Standard Development Organisations / OEMs/ MSO’s /distributors /CAS vendors for developing ITSARs,” said NCCS in its notice.
