Post-Quantum Cryptography: Digital Signature Schemes
NIST announced that the PQC standardization process is continuing with a fourth round, with the following KEMs still under consideration: BIKE, Classic McEliece, HQC, and SIKE. However, there are no remaining digital signature candidates under consideration. As such, NIST posted a call for additional digital signature proposals to be considered in the PQC standardization process. The call for submissions closed June 1, 2023. On July 17, 2023, NIST announced additional Digital Signature...
Privacy-Enhancing Cryptography PEC
The PEC project in the Cryptographic Technology Group (CTG), Computer Security Division (CSD) at NIST accompanies the progress of emerging technologies in the area of privacy-enhancing cryptography (PEC). The PEC project seeks to promote the development of reference material that can contribute to a better understanding of PEC, namely how advanced cryptographic tools can be used to enable achieving privacy goals in myriad applications. A better understanding of PEC may facilitate the...
Random Bit Generation RBG
Include revised/updated text from ??   --> Cryptography and security applications make extensive use of random numbers and random bits. However, constructing random bit generators and validating these generators are very challenging. The SP 800 90 series provides guidelines and recommendations for generating random numbers for cryptographic use, and has three parts: SP 800-90A, Recommendation for Random Number Generation Using...
Roots of Trust RoT
Modern computing devices consist of various hardware, firmware, and software components at multiple layers of abstraction. Many security and protection mechanisms are currently rooted in software that, along with all underlying components, must be trustworthy. A vulnerability in any of those components could compromise the trustworthiness of the security mechanisms that rely upon those components. Stronger security assurances may be possible by grounding security mechanisms in roots of trust....
Stateful Hash-Based Signatures HBS
In Special Publication 800-208, Recommendation for Stateful Hash-Based Signature Schemes, NIST approves two schemes for stateful hash-based signatures (HBS) as part of the post-quantum cryptography development effort.  The two schemes were developed through the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF): 1) XMSS, specified in Request for Comments (RFC) 8391 in May 2018, and 2) LMS, in RFC 8554 in April 2019. Background HBS schemes were the topic for a session of talks during the first public workshop...
