About Open Checklist Interactive Language (OCIL) documents
The Open Checklist Interactive Language (OCIL) defines a standard format to publish a set of questions that you circulate among the target users. OCIL also specifies the procedures to interpret the user responses. OCIL provides a standardized approach to express and evaluate non-automated security checks, so that the security policies of your organization are not exposed to vulnerabilities.
OCIL provides you with a well-defined and structure standard to represent the manual security checks that you want to implement across your organization.
