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.

  • OSCAL Model Review: A bi-weekly meeting hosted by the NIST OSCAL development team to update adopters on the latest improvements to the OSCAL models, and for community members to provide high-bandwidth feedback on concerns, gaps, and other issues with the OSCAL models.

We encourage you to attend these meetings as a way to keep up-to-date on and contribute to the development of OSCAL.
