The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has released a preliminary practice guide, Automation of the NIST Cryptographic Module Validation Program, for public comment through July 25, 2023.
This project is part of NIST’s larger initiative to modernize its Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP).
About this Project
Since the CMVP’s beginnings, demands for the latest technology, cryptographic module fixes, and patch releases have outpaced NIST’s validation model. Today, NIST is working to reduce the length of the validation cycle, while maintaining and improving assurance levels.
The goals of this practice guide are to:
