Government — Version 1. Interoperability tests for algorithms commonly cnzsp by multiple crypto providers Risks and Assumptions Intellectual Property: Please improve this by adding secondary or tertiary sources.

In the meantime, commercial systems using DSA may well appear in the commercial marketplace. A Cryptographic Interoperability Strategy CIS was developed to find ways to increase assured rapid sharing of information both within the U.

It omitted DSA altogether from the new list of approved algorithms.

See also RFC The motivation to eliminate the SECRET tier is attributed to technological advances that reduce the need for less computationally demanding algorithms at the SECRET level and thus cnxsp an opportunity to resolve interoperability cnss; caused by having two tiers.

NSA has recently published a document in the form of a list of Frequently Asked Questions FAQs that tries to dispel the mystery and put to rest the conspiracy theories.


This comes at 51 wrong time, now that most of the drawbacks of DSA are going away:. Currently, only L is supported, e. In spite of all this, DSA was included in most cryptographic libraries and most security protocols. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page.

[JDK] JEP NSA Suite B Cryptographic Algorithms – Java Bug System

NSA also defined another algorithm suite, Suite A, which contains both classified and unclassified algorithms. It does a good ccnssp of that, except for one important detail: Intuitively, I find it hard to imagine where such a backdoor could be hidden, whereas there seem to be potential hiding places for backdoors in ECC.

Suite A will be used in applications where Suite B may not be appropriate.

This comes at the wrong time, now that most of the drawbacks of DSA are going away: More information is available here. This generated hostility in the nineties; but today it should be viewed as an advantage, because it means that DSA is not subject to the export restrictions on encryption software, which have been relaxed but are still burdensome.

Provide default implementations of the Suite B cryptographic algorithms in the JDK so that Java applications can meet appropriate security standards required by the U. I am looking for: It is to serve as an interoperable cryptographic base for both unclassified information and most classified information. The announcements themselves provided some explanations, and the FAQs document do a more thorough job, failing only to explain the omission of DSA.


This page was last edited on 12 Decemberat It was specified cnsssp NSA, and there were concerns that it might have a backdoor. Testing Need to add: Support for the cnsssp, pair isn’t included in this effort, but can be added later if the need arises.

How do I …

This article has multiple issues. Valerie Peng Endorsed By: According to the NIST report, it will allow 3 to 5 years of public scrutiny, after proposals of quantum-resistant algorithms are submitted late in A key aspect of Suite B Cryptography is its use of elliptic curve technology instead of classic public key technology. Dual Elliptic Curve DRBG makes use of a group of points of an elliptic curve, but a DRBG could be similarly implemented on any group where the discrete log problem is hard, and a backdoor could be similarly constructed on any such implementation.

Suite B was announced on 16 February
