[P1619-3] Fwd: NIST Cryptography Publications: SP 800-131, Key Management Workshop Summary, and FIPS 140-3 draft

Hi Folks,

I just got this message from NIST, and think it is relevant to the P1619.3 standard.  Also, I noticed that the second FIPS 140-3 draft was released last December.  See

Draft Special Publication 800-131, Recommendation for the Transitioning of Cryptographic Algorithms and Key Sizes, is available for public comment at NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-57, Part 1 included a general approach for transitioning from one algorithm or key length to another. Draft SP 800-131 provides more specific guidance for transitions to stronger cryptographic keys and more robust algorithms. Public comments should be sent to CryptoTransitions@xxxxxxxx by March 15, 2010. The authors of this document, Elaine Barker and Allen Roginsky, will be available for discussions at the RSA Conference in San Francisco on March 1-5.


NIST Internal Report 7609, Cryptographic Key Management Workshop Summary – June 8-9, 2009, is now available at This document provides highlights of a workshop that was held in June 2009 to discuss the current state of key management systems, to identify future needs, and to discuss the development of a Cryptographic Key Management Design Framework that will address the issues discussed during the workshop.
