Info icon.

Control is new to this version of the control set.

Control Statement

Provide application interface(s) to CSCs so that they programmatically retrieve their data to enable interoperability and portability.

Implementation Guidance

These APIs should support interoperability between components and facilitate the secure migration of applications and data between environments. Documentation supports API functionality, being updated regularly and given to customers alongside new API versions. Furthermore, security issues should be considered during development and updates.

Auditing Guidance

  1. Examine the list of Application Programming Interfaces (API) available to Cloud Service Consumers.
  2. Determine if such list and usable documentation is made available to Cloud Service Consumers.
