National Institute of Standards and Technology Interagency or Internal Report, Automation Support for Security Control Assessments (NISTIR 8011) (June 2017)

Overview[]

The NISTIR 8011 volumes focus on each individual information security capability, adding tangible detail to the more general overview given in NISTIR 8011, Volume 1, and providing a template for transition to a detailed, NIST standards-compliant automated assessment.

Volume 2 of NISTIR 8011 addresses the Hardware Asset Management (HWAM) information security capability. The focus of the HWAM capability is to manage risk created by unmanaged and/or unauthorized devices on a network. Unmanaged devices are targets that attackers can use to gain and more easily maintain a persistent platform from which to attack the rest of the network.
