CADFWG Cloud Auditing Data Federation (CADF) Working Group

 

Working Group Description

The Cloud Auditing Data Federation Working Group (CADF) sets out to resolve major problems with the inconsistency, incompatibility, and even inability of existing cloud and service audit interfaces, technologies, and tools. The group focuses on standardizing audit events across all cloud and service providers, and on making audit events comprehensible, consistent, shareable, and merge-able.

The CADF Working Group develops the DMTF’s CADF standard. More than a format, the CADF standard defines a full event model anyone can use to fill in the essential data needed to certify, self-manage and self-audit application security in cloud environments.

CADF is part of the DMTF’s Cloud Management Initiative, which is focused on developing interoperable cloud infrastructure management standards and promoting the adoption of those standards in the industry.
