This project is in the build phase. We have selected several technology collaborators who have signed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA; see an example) with NIST. Download the Trusted Geolocation in the Cloud project description (PDF) for further details.
The NCCoE recently released a preliminary draft of Volume B: Approach, Architecture, and Security Characteristics of the NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide SP 1800-19, Trusted Cloud: Security Practice Guide for VMware Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Environments. The preliminary draft is stable but has some gaps in its content that will be addressed in the next draft. The NCCoE is requesting your feedback on the preliminary draft to help shape the next draft. The initial comment period for this volume closed on January 11, 2019.
Following an experimental agile process for continuous delivery of special publication, the other volumes of this practice guide will be released for review and comment on different schedules so that each volume is made available as soon as possible, rather than delaying the release of completed volumes until all other volumes are also completed. The guide will be available in three volumes:
- SP 1800-19A: Executive Summary (preliminary draft)
- SP 1800-19B: Approach, Architecture, and Security Characteristics (preliminary draft)
- SP 1800-19C: How-To Guides (coming soon)
