Imagine you have a box filled with your favorite toys, and you want to make sure they are safe. Normally, you might let your best friend into your room because you trust them. But what if there’s a chance someone else could sneak in and take your toys? That’s where “zero trust” comes in.

With zero trust, you don’t automatically trust anyone who comes into your room, even if they’re your friend. Instead, you check and make sure they are who they say they are and that they’re allowed to be there. You might ask them for a secret code or use a special key to open the treasure chest. This way, you’re being careful and checking everyone before letting them play with your toys.

Zero trust is like having a special security system for your toys. It’s all about making sure only the right people can access your treasures. This way, even if someone sneaks into your room, they won’t be able to take your toys because they haven’t proven themselves trustworthy. It’s a way to keep your things safe and make sure only the right people can get to them.
