Container Guidance for Federal Information Systems

Back to Listing

Hanover, MD, 22 July 2019


Recently, we performed an analysis of the NIST 800-53 and CNSSI 1253 in relation to basic container environments.

We are pleased to present the results of this analysis in a paper entitled Container Guidance for Federal Information Systems.

This paper is not endorsed by any particular federal department or agency but it is written in such a way that it may be readily incorporated alongside current guidance for existing information systems.

It is our hope that the content of this paper can continue to evolve over time as technology advances. We welcome feedback via email and will attempt to incorporate all reasonable feedback as it maps into federal policy.
