In August 2020, NIST published NIST Special Publication 800-207. Its abstract reads, in part, "Zero trust is the term for an evolving set of cybersecurity paradigms that move defenses from static, network-based perimeters to focus on users, assets and resources."

White House Publishes Federal Zero Trust Strategy
The White House in March 2022 released its federal zero trust strategy, requiring agencies to meet certain cybersecurity standards and objectives by the end of fiscal year 2024. The strategy builds upon the executive order signed by President Joe Biden in May 2021 to improve the United States’ cyber defenses. The executive order was signed in response to the SolarWinds, Colonial Pipeline and other significant attacks carried out by foreign threat actors. When a zero trust model is implemented, no user, system, network or service operating inside or outside the security perimeter is trusted, and every access attempt is verified.
