    Hi All,

    The NCCoE will solicit participation from the industry to demonstrate first-party and third-party tests and test tools for automation of the CMVP, as well as first-party processes and means for communicating the results to NIST. Increased automation is necessary because a number of elements of the current validation processes are manual in nature, making third-party testing and government validation of cryptographic modules often incompatible with industry requirements. In addition to demonstrating tests, tools, and processes, this project will also result in practice descriptions in the form of white papers, playbook generation, and implementation demonstrations, which aim to improve the ability and efficiency of organizations.

    The public comment period is open through May 12, 2021. See the publication details for a copy of the draft and instructions for submitting comments.
