TheÂ Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program has launched a “tailored” baseline designed to accelerate the process for authorizing low-impactÂ software- as-a-service platforms for government use.
A blog entryÂ posted ThursdayÂ says theÂ FedRAMP Tailored baseline covers low-riskÂ systems such as collaboration platforms, project management applications and tools that support open-source codeÂ development.
The baseline is also meant to give authorizing officials a standard approach to identify risks associated with the authorization of low-impact cloud offerings.
FedRAMP initially sought public feedback on a draft of the baseline in February, then extended the comment period through April.
The program received more than 330 public comments on the tailored baseline.
