Apps.gov Authorization Decision
Product Owner: Andrew Stroup | System Owner: Andrew Stroup

Deputy Infrastructure Director, 18F
Designated Authorizing Official
From:
Aaron Snow
Deputy Associate Administrator, 18F
Authorizing Official
Subject: Authority to operate for https://apps.gov/
A scoped security assessment of this system has been performed by the 18F DevOps team in accordance with 18F methodologies to detect vulnerabilities in sites managed by second or third parties.
Apps.gov is an active marketplace that helps gov employees evaluate and compare cloud-based products. Information on product's description, certifications, and contract vehicles are listed. Additionally, resources for tech companies to list their products and how to get started selling to the federal government can be found.
Using NIST FIPS 199 methodology, this system has been given the following security categories if the following are lost:
Confidentiality: n/a
Integrity: Low
Availability: Low
The system contains only publicly available information for general consumption and overall meets the requirements in Guidelines for Granting Authority to Operate 18F Hosted Open Data Systems.
Based on the results from automated scans of the infrastructure, operating system, code base, and attack surface area, I have determined that the risk to agency operations, data, or assets resulting from the operation of the system is acceptable.
Accordingly, I am issuing an authorization to operate the system in its existing environment through March 12, 2017 under the following conditions:
The security boundary of the underlying infrastructure or the system will not be significantly altered; changes will require re-assessment.
The security authorization of the information system will remain in effect through the date above, as long as the system falls under the definition of an OpenData system and any critical security issues identified as a result of continuous monitoring are remediated immediately.
