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, William Whyte,
