Detecting and thwarting the threats and vulnerabilities of today’s computer systems and networks have challenged technical professionals from numerous companies and government organizations.
NIST’s SCAP was created as a community effort to create a common set of standards to help express and automate configuration management. The SCAP standards provide a common language for organizations to perform continuous monitoring and assessment of the endpoint population in regards to compliance with required configurations and the existence of known vulnerabilities for the ultimate purpose of minimizing the attack surface of each endpoint.

Membership in the Trusted Computing Group is your key to participating with fellow industry stakeholders in the quest to develop and promote trusted computing technologies.
Standards-based Trusted Computing technologies developed by TCG members now are deployed in enterprise systems, storage systems, networks, embedded systems, and mobile devices and can help secure cloud computing and virtualized systems.
Trusted Computing Group announced that its TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) Library Specification was approved as a formal international standard under ISO/IEC (the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission). TCG has 90+ specifications and guidance documents to help build a trusted computing environment.
