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!
