Notes on other lists:

  • The once called single-device track of the threshold cryptography project is now the "masked circuits" project, with its own mailing list: MC-forum
  • An older TC-forum was used when the "threshold cryptography" exploratory project comprised both multi-party and single-device tracks.
  • Other NIST crypto projects have their own mailing lists: PQC-forum, LWC-forum, PEC-forum.
