    The National Information Assurance Partnership in the next month will release two draft guides to create standards for systems security certification and accreditation and for minimum security controls for IT.

    NIAP is a collaboration between the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National Security Agency.

    NIAP president Ron Ross said yesterday that the guides are the first attempt to help agencies use common definitions and measures when securing systems. He said there are about 12 certification and accreditation programs across government. NIAP will release the drafts for a 45-day public-comment period. The first draft is set for an Oct. 28 release, the second for Nov. 11. NIAP plans to issue final versions next year, Ross said.
