The HIPAA Security Rule specifically focuses on protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information (ePHI), as defined by the Security Rule. All HIPAA-regulated entities must comply with the requirements of the Security Rule. This draft update:...

This report considers signature schemes that are compatible with the verification phase of the Edwards Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (EdDSA) specified in Draft Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) publication 186-5. The report analyzes threshold schemes, where the private signing key...

The NIST SP 800-90 series supports the generation of high-quality random bits for cryptographic and non-cryptographic use. The security of a random number generator depends on the unpredictability of its outputs, which can be measured in terms of entropy. The NIST SP 800-90 series uses min-entropy t...

The NIST SP 800-90 series of documents supports the generation of high-quality random bits for cryptographic and non-cryptographic use. SP 800-90A specifies several deterministic random bit generator (DRBG) mechanisms based on cryptographic algorithms. SP 800-90B provides guidance for the developmen...
