Zero Trust Architecture

Zero trust architecture is an emerging security concept that can be summarized as ”never trust, always verify”. Academic research with regards to zero trust has considerably intensified in the last few years. While the overall concept of zero-trust is clear, a lot of work is needed to support organizations with the transition from the current perimeter based security model. Few examples of successful implementation of ZTA exist today, most notably Googles Beyond-Prod project. Widespread usage and implementation of ZTA is still lacking.
