MAC Validation List


Implementations in this list have successfully passed the validation test of the MAC Validation System (MVS), operated by the Security Technology Group. The MVS tests implementations for conformance to FIPS 113, Computer Data Authentication, which describes the generation of a Data Authentication Code (This is more commonly referred to as a Message Authentication Code, or MAC, which is terminology used in FIPS 113's sister standard, ANSI X9.9). The list below is organized chronologically, with the most recent validations listed last. Each entry mentions which MVS options were validated. Information contained in the list is accurate to the best of our knowledge; it is up to the vendor of the validated product to inform NIST of appropriate changes.
