Security industry standards – a research agenda

Weaver, Benjamin LU (2013) In SRC memo series 14.
Abstract
The security industry has traditionally been highly fragmented and vendors have opted for proprietary standards that induce customer lockin. Several factors – including absence of network effects, end-user heterogeneity and low barriers of entry – have contributed to the dearth of standards. The shift to digital product platforms did not initially change the structural dynamics that inhibit standards within the industry. However, as the security industry breaks away from vertical integration and is coming to resemble the modular IT industry, the need for increased interoperability has become a critical issue.
