About NIST 800-171

The  National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-171 (NIST 800-171)  is an information security framework that provides guidelines for protecting the confidentiality of controlled unclassified information (CUI) when stored in nonfederal information systems.

Several federal agencies require NIST 800-171.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD)  requires all of its contractors to demonstrate compliance with NIST 800-171  as part of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) and the  Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).

More recently, Federal Student Aid (FSA), an office of the U.S. Department of Education (ED), gave notice of its intent to require NIST 800-171 as part of its proposed  Campus Cybersecurity Program.  The proposed program applies to all aspects of the administration of Title IV federal student aid programs and builds on the current requirements of the  Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA).
