Overview[edit | edit source]

The Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provides technical leadership for the United States' measurement and standards infrastructure. ITL develops tests, test methods, reference data, proof of concept implementations, and technical analyses to advance the development and productive use of information technology. ITL's responsibilities include the development of management, administrative, technical, and physical standards and guidelines for the cost-effective security and privacy of other than classified national security information in federal information systems.

The Special Publication 800-series from the NIST reports on ITL's research, guidelines, and outreach efforts in information system security, and its collaborative activities with industry, government, and academic organizations.

ITL Security Bulletins[edit | edit source]

Each ITL Security Bulletin presents an in-depth discussion of a single topic of significant interest to the information systems community. Bulletins are issued on an as-needed basis. The ITL Security Bulletins are listed below in reverse chronological order. Those ITL Security Bulletins that have already been summarized are in blue; those that have not yet been summarized are in red.
