Launch of Technical Specifications for Residential Gateways (“RG”)
The Infocomm Media Development Authority (“IMDA”) launched the finalised Technical Specifications for Residential Gateways (“RG”) on 12 Oct 2020 to help enhance security requirements for new home routers sold in Singapore.
Wi-Fi home routers which comply with IMDA’s specifications qualify for Level 1 of the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore’s Cybersecurity Labelling Scheme (CLS).
While users do not need to change their existing home routers, they are encouraged to purchase those which are compliant with IMDA’s cybersecurity requirements when they next upgrade their devices. They are also advised to update their firmware regularly.
