The first public draft of NISTIR 7682
, Information System Security Best Practices for UOCAVA-Supporting Systems
, is now available for public comment. This document is intended to provide jurisdictions with a set of computer security best practices that can be used as a baseline set of controls for securing their IT systems, and the supporting infrastructure. It examines the large collection of cyber security resources, including standards, guidelines, tools, and metrics, that NIST has developed to help federal agencies under the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) of 2002 and summarizes them for those designing, deploying, or using information technology systems that support UOCAVA voting. This document is directed toward readers who have a high degree of technical literacy of computer and network components, as well as computer security technologies. The primary audience for this document is technical personnel charged with implementing, deploying or maintaining UOCAVA voting systems.
