Updated: August 2009
|*NOTE: Categories in the Families, Topic Clusters, and Legal Requirements listings are from the "Guide to NIST Information Security Documents."|
FIPS Publications are issued by NIST after approval by the Secretary of Commerce pursuant to Section 5131 of the Information Technology Reform Act of 1996 (Public Law 104-106) and the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (Public Law 107-347).
With the passage of the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002, there is no longer a statutory provision to allow for agencies to waive mandatory Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Therefore, the references to the "waiver process" contained in many of the FIPS are no longer applicable.
