This week, FedRAMP published two Q&A’s for Cloud Service Providers(CSPs):

Cloud Service Providers (CSPs)

Q: How can the CSP access the redline version of the New FedRAMP SSP template?

A: Please email info@fedramp.gov to request the redlined version of the New SSP templates. We will send you zip file with all of the SSPs (including the LI-SaaS Appendix B). There are many formatting changes and other minor corrections, but the major changes are as follows:

1) Alignment with NIST 800-63-3 Digital Identity Requirements (Section 2.3, IA-5, Attachment 3)

2) Updated reference to boundary guidance document (Section 9.2)

3) Updated vulnerability remediation requirements (RA-5)

Cloud Service Providers (CSPs)

Q: Is a CSP required to submit a Significant Change Request for combining or consolidating an already approved Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS)?

A: A significant change request is required to consolidate systems, even if both are already authorized. Please complete our Significant Change Form Template found on the FedRAMP Templates Page.
