VMware vSphere 8.0 Update 3 STIG Slated for Release

VMware recently released vSphere 8.0 Update 3. Revised STIG content for U3 will be released rapidly to provide STIG support for U3 deployments.

The VMware vSphere 8.0 STIG packages will be incremented to V2R1, which will include U3 updates, NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 5 Control Correlation Identifier updates, and any pending revisions for the July 2024 Quarterly Maintenance Release.

Existing deployments based on U2 should continue to use the current V1R1 package until they are upgraded to U3. The V1R1 package will remain on Cyber Exchange in its original, unaltered state until VMware halts support for U2. No maintenance will be performed on the VMware V1R1 STIGs.
