    Hi All,

    Announcement of Proposal to Revise Special Publications 800-22 Revision 1a

    In August 2021, NIST's Cryptographic Publication Review Board initiated a review process for NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-22 Rev. 1a, A Statistical Test Suite for Random and Pseudorandom Number Generators for Cryptographic Applications.

    In response to the public comments received, NIST proposes to revise SP 800-22 Rev. 1a to:
    1. address technical suggestions (e.g., new research results, considerations for two-level testing, supporting shorter sequences, independence of the tests),
    2. clarify the use of the statistical randomness tests,
    3. improve the software tool,
    4. resolve inconsistencies with the SP 800-22 and SP 800-90 series, and
    5. improve the editorial quality of the standard.

    Public comments on this proposal may be submitted to [email protected] by February 14, 2022. Please use "Comments on SP 800-22 Rev 1a Decision Proposal" in the Subject.
