IEEE-2600 - New IEEE Printer Security Standard


The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers created the P2600: Hardcopy Device and System Security Working Group to develop security standards. The focus of the Working Group is to identify and document security issues and threats, and then provide recommendations to manufacturers on how to mitigate these security risks.

The goals of this activity are to:

• Define security requirements that include all aspects of security for manufacturers, users and others on the selection, installation, configuration and usage of hardcopy devices and systems including printers, copiers, and multifunction devices and the computer systems that support these.

• Identify security exposures of hardcopy devices and systems and instruct manufacturers and software developers on appropriate security capabilities to include in their devices and systems and instruct users on appropriate ways to use these security capabilities.
