NIST announces the release of Draft NISTIR 8214, Threshold Schemes for Cryptographic Primitives. This publication provides a high-level overview of the possibilities that threshold schemes bring for enhancing the robustness of cryptographic primitive implementations. With its release, NIST also intends to initiate a discussion about the standardization of threshold schemes.
The goal of this document is to help readers understand the challenges and opportunities offered by threshold cryptography, typically as a tradeoff between different security properties desired in implementations of cryptographic primitives (e.g., signatures, encryption). Draft NISTIR 8214 also considers the implications of potential standardization for the validation and use of practical implementations of threshold cryptographic schemes.
Your feedback is important to improve this publication. Each contributed review will be appreciated. Insightful comments from an international spectrum, including from public and private sectors, and from industrial and academic institutions, will help us shape this reference for discussion towards standardization and validation of threshold schemes that can enhance the security of implementations of cryptographic primitives.
