All,

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST, a part of the 
US Department of Commerce) has released for public comment a revised 
draft of Special Publication 800-37 (SP 800-37), Guide for the Security 
Certification and Accreditation of Federal Information Systems. It is a 
critical document within the Federal  information security  field  and 
represents an opportunity for organizations like OWASP to emphasize the 
importance of application security considerations.

NIST is accepting public comment on the draft document until December 
31, 2009 and OWASP wants to contribute.  Dan Philpott has offered to 
lead this important effort.

If you're interested in helping review this publication, please let Dan 
know and he'll add you to the project.  Please express your interest by 
COB Thursday, December 3 - we want to kick this off as soon as possible 
to avoid conflicts with the holidays

This is a great way to get involved in both OWASP and in a 
high-visibility project with NIST!

Thanks,

Rex
