NIST Cloud Computing Standards Roadmap NIST SP500 291 v1.0 66 Appendix D – Standards Developing Organizations Global Information and Communications Technologies (IT) standards are developed in many venues. Such standards are created through collaborative efforts that have a global reach, are voluntary, and are widely adopted by the marketplace across national borders. These standards are developed not only by national member-based international standards bodies, but also by consortia groups and other organizations. In July 2009, a Wiki site for cloud computing standards coordination was established: cloud- standards.org. The goal of the site is to document the activities of the various SDOs working on cloud computing standards. The following is a list of SDOs that have standards projects and standards relevant to cloud computing. CloudAudit The goal of CloudAudit is to provide a common interface and namespace that allows cloud computing providers to automate the Audit, Assertion, Assessment, and Assurance (A6) of their infrastructure (IaaS), platform (PaaS), and application (SaaS) environments and allow authorized consumers of their services to do likewise via an open, extensible, and secure interface and methodology. CloudAudit is a volunteer cross-industry effort from the best minds and talent in cloud, networking, security, audit, assurance, and architecture backgrounds. The CloudAudit/A6 Working group was officially launched in January 2010 and has the participation of many of the largest cloud computing providers, integrators, and consultants. Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) Open Virtualization Format (OVF) DSP0243 Open Virtualization Format (OVF) V1.1.0 OVF has been designated as ANSI INCITS 469 2010 This specification describes an open, secure, portable, efficient, and extensible format for the packaging and distribution of software to be run in virtual machines. Open Cloud Standards Incubator DMTF’s Open Cloud Standards Incubator focused on standardizing interactions between cloud environments by developing cloud management use cases, architectures, and interactions. This work was completed in July 2010. The work has now transitioned to the Cloud Management Working Group.

NIST Cloud Computing Standards Roadmap NIST SP500 291 v1.0 67 Cloud Management Working Group (CMWG) The CMWG will develop a set of prescriptive specifications that deliver architectural semantics as well as implementation details to achieve interoperable management of clouds between service requestors/developers and providers. This WG will propose a resource model that, at a minimum, captures the key artifacts identified in the use cases and interactions for managing clouds document produced by the Open Cloud Incubator. Using the recommendations developed by DMTF's Open Cloud Standards Incubator, the Cloud Management Workgroup (CMWG) is focused on standardizing interactions between cloud environments by developing specifications that deliver architectural semantics and

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
