Computer Security Resource Center

The Computer Security Resource Center (CSRC) is maintained and updated by the Computer Security Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The Computer Security Resource Center (CSRC) is the Computer Security Division's Web site. CSRC is one of the four most visited Web sites at NIST. We use the CSRC to encourage broad sharing of information security tools and practices, to provide a resource for information security standards and guidelines, and to identify and link key security Web resources to support the industry. The CSRC is an integral component of all of the work that we conduct and produce. It is our repository for everyone, public or private sector, wanting access to our documents and other information security-related information. CSRC serves as a vital link to all our internal and external customers.
