Entropy Source Validation (ESV)

View the protocol, report issues and more on GitHub: https://github.com/usnistgov/esv-server.

Entropy Source Validation is in the works as a new scope under the CMVP provisioned by NIST Handbook 150-17. 17ESV will allow third-party labs to submit SP800-90B compliance reports for review and perform a set of automated tests on data collected from the entropy source. 

The Demo server is available after 1/28/21. The Prod server will be available when the 17ESV scope is finalized and available.
