FIPS 200

The official management decision given by a senior agency official to authorize operation of an information system and to explicitly accept the risk to agency operations (including mission, functions, image, or reputation), agency assets, or individuals, based on the implementation of an agreed-upon set of security controls.

Also known as authorize processing (OMB Circular A-130, Appendix III), and approval to operate. Accreditation (or authorization to process information) is granted by a management official and provides an important quality control. By accrediting a system or application, a manager accepts the associated risk. Accreditation (authorization) must be based on a review of controls. (See Certification.)

NIST SP 800-18r1

The official management decision given by a senior agency official to authorize operation of an information system and to explicitly accept the risk to agency operations (including mission, functions, image, or reputation), agency assets, or individuals, based on the implementation of an agreed-upon set of security controls. (NIST SP 800-37)

NIST SP 800-26

Accreditation is synonymous with the term authorize processing. Accreditation is the authorization and approval granted to a major application or general support system to process in an operational environment. It is made on the basis of a certification by designated technical personnel that the system meets pre-specified technical requirements for achieving adequate system security. See also Authorize Processing, Certification, and Designated Approving Authority.
