What is OSCAL?

OSCAL (Open Security Controls Assessment Language) is a set of compliance standards developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). These standards are designed to provide a common language and framework for evaluating the security of an organization's information systems and processes.

OSCAL consists of a set of documents that outline the security controls and requirements that organizations must follow in order to protect their information and systems. The OSCAL standards are divided into three main categories:

Control Baselines: These are the minimum security controls that must be implemented in order to provide a basic level of security.

Profiles: These are specific configurations of the control baselines that are tailored to the needs of different types of organizations or systems.

Assessments: These are guidelines for conducting evaluations of an organization's security controls to determine whether they are sufficient to protect against potential threats.

The OSCAL standards are intended to be flexible and adaptable, allowing organizations to tailor their security controls to fit their specific needs and requirements. They are also designed to be compatible with other security standards, such as the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and the ISO/IEC 27001 standard for information security management.

By following the OSCAL standards, organizations can ensure that their information systems and processes are secure and compliant with relevant regulations and requirements.
