NIST CMVP employees are furloughed

Any work requiring NIST CMVP involvement will be delayed until the US government executes a resolution to the budget.  This shut down will impact all FIPS 140-2 validations and revalidations in review by the CMVP, maintenance letters, and algorithm testing.

InfoGard and other FIPS laboratories will remain open.  Lab testing services that do not require NIST CMVP involvement will continue.

The CSEC side of the CMVP will continue their operations although no validations will be completed without a NIST signatory. 

This shut down will increase the already long CMVP review times for FIPS 140-2 reports.  The CMVP is currently reviewing reports that were submitted in January.
