Abstract: Special Publication 800-70 Revision 2 - National Checklist Program for IT Products Guidelines for Checklist Users and Developers describes security configuration checklists and their benefits, and it explains how to use the NIST National Checklist Program (NCP) to find and retrieve checklists. The publication also describes the policies, procedures, and general requirements for participation in the NCP.
