June 12, 2013

Special Publication 800-56A Revision 2
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is pleased to announce the release of Special Publication 800-56A, Revision 2 Recommendation for Pair-Wise Key Establishment Schemes Using Discrete Logarithm Cryptography. The revisions are made on the March 2007 version of this Recommendation. The major revisions are summarized in Appendix D. 
 
NIST Interagency Report (IR) 7298, Revision 2 
NIST and ITL are proud to announce the release of NIST Interagency Report (IR) 7298, Revision 2 Glossary of Key Information Security Terms. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has received numerous requests to provide a summary glossary for our publications and other relevant sources, and to make the glossary available to practitioners. As a result of these requests, this glossary of common security terms has been extracted from NIST Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS), the Special Publication (SP) 800 series, NIST Interagency Reports (NISTIRs), and from the Committee for National Security Systems Instruction 4009 (CNSSI-4009). This glossary includes most of the terms in the NIST publications. It also contains nearly all of the terms and definitions from CNSSI-4009. This glossary provides a central resource of terms and definitions most commonly used in NIST information security publications and in CNSS information assurance publications. Each entry in the glossary points to one or more source NIST publications, and/or CNSSI-4009, and/or supplemental sources where appropriate. The NIST publications referenced are the most recent versions of those publications (as of the date of this document).
