Welcome to the OSCAL Community

We are excited that you want to contribute to the OSCAL project. We are striving to provide a collaborative environment for professionals to contribute to the project's goals and objectives. A primary focus of this project is to improve security assessment efficiency, accuracy, and consistency on the basis of real-world experience with the technology used in this space. The language we develop must be well-defined, with easy to use formats.


We use GitHub as a collaboration platform for the development of the OSCAL models. Within the OSCAL GitHub repository you will find:

  • Join in the discussions to generate ideas, participate in polls and get your questions answered.
  • A set of issues for which we need your help. Feel free to pick from this list, or reach out to us about any other ideas you might have.
  • Guidelines on contributing to this project.
  • A project board that shows the issues the team is currently working on.

You can connect with us and other developers working on OSCAL related projects on the OSCAL Gitter or using the mailing list.
