Develop a companion resource to Secure Software Development Framework (SSDF) (EO Sec. 4.1(a)(i)(B))
NIST held a virtual workshop on Secure Development Practices for AI Models on January 17, 2024. This workshop supported the EO 14110 task for NIST to develop a companion resource to the NIST Secure Software Development Framework (SSDF). A livestream of the workshop can be viewed on NIST's website.
At a foundational level, AI systems are built and operate on software. It is critical that the software being developed is well-secured to:
NIST will work with interagency collaborators – and seek feedback from the broader community through open and transparent processes – to develop a companion to NIST’s SSDF. That resource will incorporate secure development practices for generative AI and dual-use foundation models.
