Cryptographic Algorithm Object Registration

The CSOR has allocated the following registration branch for cryptographic algorithm objects:

nistAlgorithms OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { csor nistAlgorithm(4) }

The CSOR only registers NIST-approved cryptographic algorithms. When an algorithm has already been externally assigned an object identifier (e.g., for RSA PKCS#1 digital signature), no new OID will be assigned in the CSOR arc. Information about externally assigned OIDs is provided toward the end of the page.

Registered Objects

ASN.1 Modules

Often, cryptographic algorithm objects are defined for use with other ASN.1 types. In particular, OIDs intended for use in the ASN.1 type Algorithm may be associated with parameter definitions. This information is contained in an ASN.1 module. ASN.1 modules may be assigned OIDs to uniquely identify different versions of the ASN.1 constructs. The CSOR algorithm arc includes a sub arc for ASN.1 modules. To date, a single module has been registered to support AES project.

csorModules OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { nistalgorithms modules (0) }

aesModule1 OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { csorModules aes (1) }
