Verification, Inspection, and Sanitization (VIS) Report Specification

Abstract: The Verification, Inspection and Sanitization (VIS) Report Specification provides a standardized XML-based mechanism to describe the results of all the verification, inspection, sanitization, transformation, and transliteration filter actions performed by a Filter Orchestration Engine (FOE) and its associated filters on a given set of data. The initial use case for the VIS report Specification was to support the filter reporting requirements of the Filter Sidecar Protocol (FSP). However, a VIS Report has general applicability to any system (or component) performing filtering including local and distributed filters, filter orchestration engines, Filter Sidecars, Cross Domain Solutions (CDS), and other boundary protection devices (e.g. firewalls, web proxies, mail gateways).
