The National Institute of Standards and Technology is inviting interested parties to the first of a new series of workshops focusing on the Open Security Controls Assessment Language (OSCAL). OSCAL provides a standardized set of XML-, JSON- and YAML-based formats for use by authors and maintainers of security and privacy control catalogs, control baselines, and system security plans. These formats provide for the automated exchange of control-related information between tools and facilitates the automated assessment of security and privacy controls implemented in an information system, NIST said.
NIST is seeking attendees who are developers of control-oriented security tools, and organizations that want to use or create OSCAL-based information. This workshop will provide attendees with knowledge and skill in the development and use of OSCAL.
Workshop Dates: Nov. 5-7, 2019
Location: NIST Campus Gaithersburg, Maryland
Registration Closes: Oct. 29, 2019
