|Title:||Security Automation from a NIST Perspective|
|Published:||October 21, 2011|
|Abstract:||Security automation can harmonize the vast amounts of information technology (IT) data into coherent, comparable information streams that inform timely and active management of diverse IT systems. Through the creation of internationally recognized, flexible, and open standards, security automation can facilitate IT infrastructure interoperability and broad acceptance and adoption and create opportunities for innovation. As part of the larger security automation initiative, the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) provides standardized data models and methods for assessing and reporting vulnerability and configuration state of computing systems.|
