Zero trust policy Course

Here we will discuss types of policy with an example of a zero trust policy versus a legacy policy.

42 minutes

Course description

Starting from no trust (zero trust!) and needing to extend some trust (the least possible!) in order for business to occur requires a component of the zero trust architecture to actually decide what to trust and what not to trust. And although the ZTA will ultimately make trust decisions itself at runtime, the zero trust architecture still requires some upfront configuration and guard rails of what types of connections to trust. This will vary by business environment, so we will concentrate on how to express that configuration in policy in this course.
