NIST announces the release of Special Publication 800-56B Revision 1Recommendation for Pair-Wise Key Establishment Schemes Using Integer Factorization Cryptography. NIST SP 800-56B specifies key-establishment schemes based on the Rivest Shamir Adleman (RSA) algorithm. The revision is made on the August 2009 version. The main changes are listed in Appendix D. 
 
2. NIST Interagency Report 7628 Revision 1
NIST announces the publication of NISTIR 7628 Revision 1Guidelines for Smart Grid Cybersecurity. The three volumes of NISTIR 7628 Rev. 1 present a comprehensive framework that organizations can use to develop effective cybersecurity strategies tailored to their particular combinations of smart grid-related characteristics, risks, and vulnerabilities. Organizations in the diverse community of smart grid stakeholders can use the methods and supporting information presented in this report as guidance for assessing cybersecurity risk and identifying and applying appropriate cybersecurity requirements. Since the original release in 2010, smart grid technologies and implementations have moved from a notional vision to deployments and stakeholders have had the opportunity to provide feedback on the report and their experience deploying systems.
