Zero Trust for Hardware Supply Chains: Challenges in Application of Zero Trust Principles to Hardware
A discussion by the Electronics Division of Zero Trust and Quantifiable Assurance concepts as related to microelectronics to promote broader dialog on the complexities facing the Defense Industrial Base regarding these controversial topics. This white paper facilitates a broader understanding of Zero Trust and the challenges for application to hardware and supply chain assurance. Its purpose is to facilitate a high-level understanding of zero trust principles, to foster necessary dialog for understanding what it will take to apply these principles to the microelectronics domain, including the need to demonstrate and prove techniques, prior to implementing specific guidance in acquisition policy.

How to On-Shore Critical Semiconductor Production, Secure the Supply Chain, and Provide Access for the Industrial Base
This White Paper addresses US Government and Semiconductor Industry shared interest to establish a robust, on-shore, supply chain. Findings include increased flexibility in acquisition and commercialization of Government and Industry critical technologies and a recommendation for rapid update of policies, along with closely coordinated actions, to counter global realities and mitigate and reverse off-shoring trends. Holistic demand signals and improved industry standards are necessary to optimize the domestic ecosystem. This paper is is for the purpose of stimulating constructive dialog does not represent an official position of member companies or NDIA.
