NIST Needs Industry Feedback on Crypto-Cybersecurity

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) asks industry to comment on a draft project description that discusses security against quantum computer-based cyber attacks.

NCCoE needs input on resilient algorithms to identify the scope, hardware and software required for migration to post-quantum cryptography, the National Institute of Standards and Technology said Friday.

The center wants to develop white papers, playbooks and other demonstrable practices in support of cryptographic service providers, technology producers and policymakers.

NIST's Murugiah Souppaya and William Barker from Dakota Consulting authored the draft. Interested parties may access the draft here and submit input through July 7th, 2021.

The publication aligns with NIST's larger effort to standardize post-quantum cryptography.

Army Research Laboratory, University of Texas Create Algorithm Experimentation Platform; Jaime Acosta Quoted

The U.S. Army and its partners from the University of Texas at El Paso have developed an integrated platform designed to help analysts evaluate the performance of cybersecurity algorithms in specific situations. The repeatable experimentation system or RES virtualizes, emulates, simulates and contains algorithms to help analysts run situation-based assessments.
