MUD File Service

GlobalPlatform’s Manufacturer Usage Description (MUD) File Service helps device manufacturers publish the MUD file library associated with their product in a unique location. This allows network managers to automatically see the requirements of a connecting device to ensure they give the correct level of access.

In doing so, the service protects connected devices and the networks they connect to. As the number of IoT devices and device types continue to grow, the deployment of MUD files will help manage an expanding and varied IoT.

The MUD File Service is currently operating as a free beta service, helping users simplify the access routes their constrained end devices use to connect to a network. Find out more about the service on our website.
