The goal of Zero Trust is to make a system trusted.
It’s complex, costly and time-consuming.
Zero Trust is all about identity.
Truth: Identity is only part of Zero Trust. Traffic the asserted identity generates must be inspected for malicious content and unauthorized activity and logged through Layer 7. Start with the protect surface (the sensitive data you want to protect), and extend across the network to the applications, systems and users.
You can do Zero Trust at Layer 3.
