RMF (Risk Management Framework) Rubik's CUBE

CUBE implements a web-based workflow to select the RMF security and privacy controls for federal information systems and organizations. It helps organization to craft Security Controls for a system to meet operations as well as the constraints due to applicable laws, directives, Executive Orders, policies, standards, or regulations.

CUBE: A Select-Control workflow from RMF Questionnaires to Security Controls

CUBE performs Select Controls for Implement Controls

What is CUBE?

CUBE is a web-based tool for an organization to conveniently customize the RMF Security Controls for government and enterprise information systems (e.g., cloud). Control Selection follows the FISMA metrics, SP 800-53 controls, FedRAMP standard, and/or NIST CSF baselines.

Why use CUBE?

CUBE offers 4C-value for control selection: COMPLIANCE with security and privacy risk Standards, CONFIDENCE with security and privacy risk protection, CONVENIENCE with organization-wide RMF Controls Selection and Implementation, and COST-SAVING with a balance of cost and risk.

CUBE outputs the Security and Privacy Controls in standardized formats, including human readable (e.g., PDF) and machine readable (e.g., OSCAL - Open Security Controls Assessment Language) documents. OSCAL formats (XML, JSON, and YAML) provide machine-readable representations of control catalogs, control baselines, system security plans, and assessment plans and results.
