Draft Special Publication 800-131A Revision 1, Transitions: Recommendation for Transitioning the Use of Cryptographic Algorithms and Key Lengths
July 10, 2015

NIST requests comments on Draft Special Publication (SP) 800-131A Revision 1Transitions: Recommendation for Transitioning the Use of Cryptographic Algorithms and Key Lengths, which was originally published in January 2011. The most significant differences in this revision are 1) declaring the Dual_EC_DRBG as a disallowed method for random bit generation, 2) the deprecation of the non-approved key-agreement and key-transport schemes, and the non-approved key-wrapping methods through December 31, 2017, and the intent to disallow them thereafter, and 3) the inclusion of the SHA-3 hash functions specified in FIPS 202. Please submit comments by August 14, 2015to CryptoTransitions@nist.gov, with "SP 800-131A Comments" in the subject line.
