    Please use the new Test Runner from now on, as NPIVP will only accept test reports from laboratories submitting test evidence for PIV Card Application and PIV Middleware generated by the new SP 800-73-4 Test Runner.

    The remaining legacy RNG implementation on the validation list will be moved to the "Removed Products List on 7/31/17
