NIST requests comments on Draft Special Publication (SP) 800-219, Automated Secure
Configuration Guidance from the macOS Security Compliance Project (mSCP). It
provides resources that system administrators, security professionals, security
policy authors, information security officers, and auditors can leverage to
secure and assess macOS desktop and laptop system security in an automated way.
This publication introduces the mSCP, describes use cases for leveraging the
mSCP content, and gives an overview of the resources available on the project’s
GitHub site. The GitHub site provides practical, actionable recommendations in
the form of secure baselines and associated rules, and it is continuously
curated and updated to support each new release of macOS.
The public comment period is open
through March 23, 2022. See the publication
details for a copy of the draft and instructions for submitting
