NIST SP 800-131A Released

JUST RELEASED:  NIST Special Publication 800-131A - "Transitions: Recommendation for Transitioning the Use of Cryptographic Algorithms and Key Lengths"

SP 800-131A addresses the use of algorithms and key lengths used by Federal government agencies for the protection of sensitive but unclassified information.

Another Special Publication is expected soon:  SP 800-131B.  This SP will address the validation of FIPS 140-2 cryptographic modules that utilize the algorithms and keys detailed in SP 800-131A.

A big "Thank You!" to Elaine and Allen for incorporating the feedback from Federal Customers, Vendors, and Labs into the final version.

    1. FIPS 140-1 has been superseded by FIPS 140-2. This publication describes the requirements for cryptographic modules.

      NIST Special Publication 800-131A describes the algorithm and key strength transitions that impact FIPS 140-2 validated modules.

      I cannot choose between the two to tell you which is better. If you need to meet FIPS 140-2 requirements, then both are critical!
