Assessment of Tanzu Kubernetes Grid against NIST SP 800-53 Rev. 5 Controls

Many organizations are required to reference a standardized control framework when assessing the security and compliance of their information systems. Standardized control frameworks are intended to provide a model for how to protect information and data systems from threats, including malicious third parties, structural failures, and human error. One comprehensive and commonly referenced framework is NIST Special Publication 800-53 Rev. 5. Adherence to these controls is required for many government agencies in the United States, as well as for many private enterprises that operate within regulated markets, such as healthcare or finance. For example, the HIPAA regulations that govern the required protections for Personal Health Information (PHI) may be cross-referenced to the NIST SP 800-53 Rev. 5 control set.

This table provides an assessment of the Tanzu Kubernetes Grid platform against the NIST SP 800-53 Rev. 5 controls, and provides guidance for how deployers may achieve compliance when using a shared responsibility model. Responsibility for any particular control may be assigned as indicated.
