FIPS 140-2 report queue update

As of March 20, 2013, the CMVP has issued 52 certificates for the year (19 of those were validated by InfoGard Laboratories).  

As of March 25, 2013, InfoGard has received comments for 7 of 8 reports submitted in July 2012.  All reports submitted prior to July have been reviewed by the CMVP.  No August reports have been returned for comments yet.  

I am increasing my estimate for the current CMVP review time to 8 months.  My February post estimated a queue time that was holding at 6-7 months.  As I mentioned in my earlier post, this increase is not a surprise as the number of reports that the CMVP is processing has dramatically increased compared to last year.

  1. I may have been too pessimistic in my estimate increase to 8 months. At the end of March 2013, the CMVP has provided comments for every InfoGard report that was submitted last August. That would put the CMVP review time at 7 months, not 8.
