data integrity

Abbreviation(s) and Synonym(s):

Integrity (also, Assurance of integrity)

Definition(s):

  A property whereby data has not been altered in an unauthorized manner since it was created, transmitted or stored. In this Recommendation, the statement that a cryptographic algorithm "provides data integrity" means that the algorithm is used to detect unauthorized alterations.
Source(s):
NIST SP 800-56B Rev. 1 under Data integrity

  The property that data has not been altered by an unauthorized entity.
Source(s):
NIST SP 800-63-2 under Data Integrity [Superseded]
NIST SP 800-63-3 under Data Integrity

  A property possessed by data items that have not been altered in an unauthorized manner since they were created, transmitted or stored.
Source(s):
NIST SP 800-133 under Data integrity

  The property that data has not been altered in an unauthorized manner. Data integrity covers data in storage, during processing, and while in transit.
