GCNThe National Institute of Standards and Technology is updating its Glossary of Key Information Security terms, and has released a draft of the latest revision of Interagency Report 7298.

The glossary contains more than 200 pages of definitions, from “Access” (the ability to make use of any information system resource) to “Zone of Control” (the three-dimensional space surrounding equipment that processes classified and/or sensitive information). It defines the responsibilities of the chief information officer and describes the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) as well as its specifications and languages.
