3.13 SYSTEM AND COMMUNICATIONS PROTECTION
Employ FIPS-validated cryptography when used to protect the confidentiality of CUI.
Cryptography can be employed to support many security solutions including the protection of controlled unclassified information the provision of digital signatures and the enforcement of information separation when authorized individuals have the necessary clearances for such information but lack the necessary formal access approvals. Cryptography can also be used to support random number generation and hash generation. Cryptographic standards include FIPS-validated cryptography and/or NSA-approved cryptography. See [NIST CRYPTO]; [NIST CAVP]; and [NIST CMVP]
What is a Cybersecurity Compliance Framework?
You don’t need to clutter your security and privacy programs with an ever-increasing number of tools as they become more sophisticated. The Lionfish platform offers a one-stop solution to track progress and monitor any framework, from custom-built ones to highly-specialized and in-demand top security and privacy frameworks and certifications.
With the Lionfish platform, every framework is supported with guided scoping, policies, controls, automated evidence collection, and continuous monitoring, ensuring efficient preparation for audits or attestation in minimal time.
The Lionfish platform is compatible with a wide range of security and privacy frameworks, including:
- CMMC v2
- NERC CIP-002 through CIP-014 Revision 6
- NIST 800-171
- NIST 800-172
- PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standard)
- SOC 2
- NIST 800-53
- NIST SP800-161 Supply Chain Risk Management
