The CADF Resource Taxonomy describes resources that are commonly used in cloud and enterprise infrastructures. This list was developed based on surveys of existing cloud architectures, deployments, and implementations. The Resource Taxonomy, however, is fully intended to be extensible by profiles that may define additional resource nodes as child nodes to the ones specified below. When doing so, however, vendors and cloud providers should be aware that this places an additional burden on the consumer to correctly comprehend the new node type. Therefore, vendors and providers of CADF audit data should be careful to provide classification values that extend the existing tree from the most granular node that closely matches the functions of any newly-defined resource types. This approach will provide consumers with a baseline understanding of the function of the new resource type.
