The draft revision discusses the generation of keys to be managed and used by approved cryptographic algorithms. This revision adds the Edwards-curve Digital Signature Algorithm (EdDSA) to the original list of digital signature algorithms as well as KMAC as an algorithm for generating a Message Authentication Code (MAC). EdDSA will also be proposed as an additional signature algorithm in a forthcoming revision of Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 186, Digital Signature Standard (DSS). KMAC is specified in SP 800-185, Recommendation for Discrete Logarithm-based Cryptography: Elliptic Curve Domain Parameters. Additional changes are listed in the final appendix of SP 800-133 Rev. 1.
NOTE: A call for patent claims is included on page iv of this draft. For additional information, see the Information Technology Laboratory (ITL) Patent Policy--Inclusion of Patents in ITL Publications.
