NIST 800-171

NIST 800-171 is a security framework for organizations that must securely process Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). Below you will find a list of resources related to NIST 800-171.


The International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR) controls the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List (USML). According to the U.S. Government, all manufacturers, exporters, and brokers of defense articles/services or related technical data must be ITAR compliant. 

Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) is Federal non-classified information that the U.S. Government creates or possesses, or that a non-Federal entity (Defense Industrial Base organizations) receives, possesses, or creates on behalf of the U.S Government. Below you will find a list of resources related to ITAR compliance and handling CUI.

Managed Services (MSP) and Managed Security Services (MSSP)

In order to manage DFARS cybersecurity obligations and achieve CMMC 2.0 certification, aerospace and defense contractors in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) must implement and maintain a complex web of NIST 800-171 controls and CMMC practices. Unfortunately, utilizing outsourced managed IT service providers (MSP) creates complications because the responsibilities for security are distributed across internal and external stakeholders. Below you will find a list of resources related to MSPs and MSSPs for security and compliance.


DFARS 7012 includes a set of requirements for contractors to implement technical and procedural controls as specified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171 to protect sensitive information and to rapidly report cyber incidents.
