The NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-140x series supports Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Publication 140-3, Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules, and its associated validation testing program, the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP). The series specifies modifications to ISO/IEC 19790 Annexes and ISO/IEC 24759 as permitted by the validation authority.

Revisions of the following subseries publications are now available for public comment:

  • Second Draft NIST SP 800-140C Rev. 1, CMVP Approved Security Functions: CMVP Validation Authority Updates to ISO/IEC 24759
  • Second Draft NIST SP 800-140D Rev. 1, CMVP Approved Sensitive Security Parameter Generation and Establishment Methods: CMVP Validation Authority Updates to ISO/IEC 24759

These documents introduce the naming conventions that will be used for validation submissions and certificates. In addition, the following four standards are being added: SP 800-208, Stateful Hash-Based Signature Schemes (October 2020), SP 800-133 Rev.2, Recommendation for Cryptographic Key Generation (June 2020), SP 800-56C Rev. 2, Recommendation for Key-Derivation Methods in Key-Establishment Schemes (August 2020), RFC 8446, The Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol Version 1.3, Section 7.1 (August 2018).
