Abstract: Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum M-14-03, Enhancing the Security of Federal Information and Information Systems, reminds Federal agencies that, "Our nation's security and economic prosperity depend on ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of Federal information and information systems," and directs NIST to "publish guidance establishing a process and criteria for agencies to conduct ongoing assessments and authorization." The following guidance clarifies and amplifies current NIST guidance on security authorization contained in Special Publications 800-37, 800-39, 800-53, 800-53A, and 800-137.
