Announcement

Draft NISTIR 8259D provides a worked example result of applying the NISTIR 8259C process, focused on the federal government customer space, where the requirements of the FISMA process and the SP 800-53 security and privacy controls catalog are the essential guidance. NISTIR 8259D provides a device-centric, cybersecurity-oriented profile of the NISTIR 8259A and 8259B core baselines, calibrated against the FISMA low baseline described in NIST SP 800-53B as an example of the criteria for minimal securability for federal use cases.

This draft is released concurrently with these related IoT draft publications:

  • Draft SP 800-213IoT Device Cybersecurity Guidance for the Federal Government: Establishing IoT Device Cybersecurity Requirements
  • Draft NISTIR 8259BIoT Non-Technical Supporting Capability Core Baseline
  • Draft NISTIR 8259CCreating a Profile Using the IoT Core Baseline and Non-Technical Baseline
