NIST Testing

Testing for the CORE NIST Upgrade has been underway. The following tests have been completed:

Basic Connectivity Test

The CORE NIST Basic Connectivity Test was to ensure that each agency's physical locations will not have any issues connecting to the CORE NIST environment on April 1, 2018. The connectivity test was successful, with the majority of agency locations being able to connect to the CORE NIST environment, with the exception of Judicial Agencies and the Department of Transportation (CDOT). We are working with the IT offices at those locations to resolve the connection issues. An additional connectivity test for all agencies prior to go-live is currently under consideration.

infoAdvantage Departmental Reports Test

The infoAdvantage NIST Departmental Reports Test was to ensure that departments are able to connect to, and access, their departmental reports, and that there are no issues with departmental reports. The test was successful. Departments are encouraged to continue testing their departmental reports, and report their results here.

Zscaler Test

Zscaler testing is expected to begin in the middle of February. For higher education users, if you have a particular user that you would like to test the zscaler connection, please contact Fiftwo Baldwin at
