Project FAQs

General What Is FISMA? FISMA is the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014, 44 U.S.C. § 3551 et seq., Public Law (P.L.) 113-283. FISMA requires each federal agency to develop, document, and implement an agency-wide program to provide information security for the information and information systems that support the operations and assets of the agency, including those provided or managed by another agency, contractor, or other source. What Is NIST's Role In FISMA? FISMA reaffirmed NIST’s role of developing information security standards (Federal Information Processing Standards)...

Project FAQs

Introduction What is the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP)? SCAP is a suite of specifications for exchanging security automation content used to assess configuration compliance and to detect the presence of vulnerable versions of software. The same SCAP content can be used by multiple tools to perform a given assessment described by the content. How will SCAP v2 improve SCAP v1 capabilities? SCAP v2 will allow software installation and configuration posture to be monitored and reported as changes to that posture occur. Event-driven reporting will be used in SCAP to support software...

Publications NISTIR 8259C (Draft) December 15, 2020

Abstract: The core baseline in NISTIR 8259A, IoT Device Cybersecurity Capability Core Baseline and the non-technical baseline in NISTIR 8259B, IoT Manufacturer Non-Technical Supporting Capability Core Baseline can be expanded upon based on more specific contextual information. Using source material with infor...

Publications SP 1800-15 (Draft) September 16, 2020

Abstract: The goal of the Internet Engineering Task Force’s Manufacturer Usage Description (MUD) specification is for Internet of Things (IoT) devices to behave as intended by the manufacturers of the devices. MUD provides a standard way for manufacturers to indicate the network communications that a device r...

Publications NISTIR 8259 May 29, 2020

Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) devices often lack device cybersecurity capabilities their customers—organizations and individuals—can use to help mitigate their cybersecurity risks. Manufacturers can help their customers by improving how securable the IoT devices they make are by providing necessary cyber...

This publication defines an Internet of Things (IoT) device cybersecurity capability core baseline, which is a set of devic...

Publications Conference Paper May 18, 2020

Conference: 41st IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) is being widely adopted in recent years. Security, however, has lagged behind, as evidenced by the increasing number of attacks that use IoT devices (e.g., an arson that uses a smart oven, burglary via a smart lock). Therefore, the transparency and accountability of those de...
