IEEE P1363: Standard Specifications For Public Key Cryptography
Reissue / revision process
The standards document
IEEE 1363-2000: Standard Specifications For Public Key
Cryptography expired in 2005 and must be
reaffirmed or revised. Since an amendment to the standard has been
published in the form of Std 1363a-2004, the standard cannot be
simply reaffirmed but must be revised. The revision process will
involve at the lesat merging Std
1363-2000 and Std 1363a-2004. The working group also has the option
of making additional technical or editorial changes to the merged
document, including adding or removing techniques.
This section of the site contains
documents relevant to the revision process.
The project is currently seeking a technical editor. If you are
interested in serving, please contact the Working Group chair,
