Next Generation Networks, including specialized implementations such as Cloud Computing and Smart Grids, must be significantly more robust than today's networks — with “baked in” capabilities supporting an array of assurance and cybersecurity capabilities. One of the most significant emerging means of achieving these capabilities is by applying an ensemble of new specifications being developed under the aegis of ITU-T Study Group 17 known as CYBEX — the Cybersecurity Information Exchange Framework. This paper describes the CYBEX Framework, how it came into existence, and its potential application to Future Networks.
