CHIPS Articles: NIST Launches Beta Site for the Computer Security Resource Center

NIST Launches Beta Site for the Computer Security Resource Center
By NIST News - February 24, 2017
The NIST Computer Security Resource Center Redesign Team has been developing a new version of CSRC, and today you can access the beta release at https://beta.csrc.nist.gov. It will be available alongside http://csrc.nist.gov for several months as we continue to fix issues, implement enhanced functionality, and migrate existing content. Most—but not all—of our current content has been migrated.

A completely overhauled Publications interface includes significantly more publication details, historical documents, and external publications. Other primary CSRC content — Projects, News, and Events — are redesigned to better connect related content and provide a more consistent layout.

We’ll continue to refine a new Topics taxonomy that tags content site-wide. And soon we’ll be adding an interactive, regularly-updated Glossary that is based on NIST’s Glossary of Key Information Security Terms. And another big change you’ll notice is a responsive design that should provide a better experience to mobile device users.

On the beta site, the page footer includes an email link to submit your feedback. We appreciate your input and will take it into consideration as we move forward.

Expect more changes in the months ahead! Eventually, the beta site will go “live” and replace what’s at csrc.nist.gov. At that time, links to existing content will automatically be redirected to their new locations.

With the release of the new beta-CSRC website, your current email subscription with us through GovDelivery to the various topics/lists will remain the same — once the beta CSRC website becomes the "live" CSRC website, the GovDelivery email subscription service will not be affected — your free subscription will remain the same as it is currently.

As a non-regulatory agency of the Commerce Department, NIST promotes U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards and technology in ways that enhance economic security and improve our quality of life. For more information, visit www.nist.gov.
