Security Control Databases

On-line Reference Database for NIST Special Publication 800-53 Security Controls

The NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 4 On-line Database contains the catalog of security controls from Appendix F and G of SP 800-53 Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations (April 2013). This on-line database version has been developed primarily to help customers quickly and efficiently:

  • Browse the security controls, control enhancements, and supplemental guidance, including summarizing by control class, control family and control impact baseline; and
  • Search the security control catalog using user-specified keywords.

Comments would be appreciated on the 800-53 security control database regarding its content and any suggestions for improving its capability in serving as a reference tool for presenting NIST standards and guidelines information. Please send comments to
