Bridging the Security-Related Standardization Gap
ITU-T Study Group 17 is the lead study group for telecommunication security activities. ITU-T Study Group 17 produces materials that can be of interest and use to developing countries when identifying practical security solutions, an example of this is the newly revised ICT Security Standards Roadmap. This roadmap captures network-related security work of not only ITU-T but also of ISO/IEC, IETF and consortia groups as part of their out-reach activities.
Joint ITU-T/ITU-D activities are currently undertaken to increase deployment and awareness in developing countries of ITU-T security-related standards. Information about existing ITU-T security standards are distributed widely to ITU Member States at ITU events worldwide to ensure that a larger number of participants from developing countries are involved in ITU’s security standards development.
ITU Plenipotentiary Resolution 123 (Rev. Antalya, 2006) relates specifically to "Bridging the standardization gap between developing and developed countries". Links to some related activities and resources can be found below.
