NIST is asking for public comments on what the baseline features of the system should be, as they try to determine what capabilities are already available from commercial industry and which ones will have to be created through R&D efforts.
The goal is for independent third party companies to affirm commercial cloud providers meet the FedRAMP cybersecurity requirements. The agencies will model its approach after the one used to accredit vendors to provide products and services under HSPD-12. FedRAMP will not be ready until the fall.
