Author

Abbreviation(s) and Synonym(s):

None

Definition(s):

  The organization responsible for creating the checklist in its current format. In most cases an organization will represent both the author and authority of a checklist, but this is not always true. For example, if an organization produces validated SCAP content for a NIST publication, the organization that created the SCAP content will be listed as the Author, but NIST will remain the Authority.
