On-Line Informative References (OLIR)

The National Online Informative References (OLIR) Program is a NIST effort to facilitate subject matter experts (SMEs) in defining standardized online informative references (OLIRs) between elements of their documents, products, and services and elements of NIST documents. NISTIRs 8259A and (soon) 8259B are available as focal documents in OLIR to facilitate the development mapping between the requirements in those documents and guidance documents from other sources. As of October 2021 five informative references have been mapped to NISTIR 8259A. Information on submitting informative reference mappings can be found here.
