SC-27: Platform-Independent Applications
- NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 5:
- SC-27: Platform-independent Applications
The information system includes: [Assignment: organization-defined platform-independent applications].
Platforms are combinations of hardware and software used to run software applications. Platforms include: (i) operating systems; (ii) the underlying computer architectures, or (iii) both. Platform-independent applications are applications that run on multiple platforms. Such applications promote portability and reconstitution on different platforms, increasing the availability of critical functions within organizations while information systems with specific operating systems are under attack.
