Anthony Rutkowski points out a renewed trend of publishing "cybersecurity" "standards" through ISO/IEC, where they are hidden behind a paywall:

"[..] participants were stunned to learn that a standards body had developed a derivative standard for a power system and smart city data security - IEC 62351:2022 - and was charging 4450 Swiss Francs for a single user copy. "


Yeah WTF ISO? I had this issue this week when I was looking for a standard: I had to resort to an old version that my academic institution's library happened to have, but very few are available.

What is this nonsense? Am I maybe unlucky, and others have access to all the standards free in some other way?
