Asset Reporting Format (ARF)

The Asset Reporting Format (ARF) is a data model to express the transport format of information about assets, and the relationships between assets and reports. The standardized data model facilitates the reporting, correlating, and fusing of asset information throughout and between organizations. ARF is vendor and technology neutral, flexible, and suited for a wide variety of reporting applications.

The Emerging Specifications Discussion List is available for developers interested in ARF and other emerging security automation standards. Please subscribe to this list through the SCAP Community page.
