NIST Publishes SP 800-140Br1 on CMVP Security Policy Requirements

The final version of NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-140Br1 (Revision 1), CMVP Security Policy Requirements: CMVP Validation Authority Updates to ISO/IEC 24759 and ISO/IEC 19790 Annex B, is now available.

This document introduces four significant changes to NIST SP 800-140B:

Defines a more detailed structure and organization for the Security Policy
Captures Security Policy requirements that are defined outside of ISO/IEC 19790 and ISO/IEC 24759
Builds the Security Policy document as a combination of the subsection information
Generates the approved algorithm table based on lab/vendor selections from the algorithm tests

This final version addresses the comments made on the initial and second public drafts, including concerns with the structure of the Security Policy and the process for creating it.

The NIST SP 800-140x series supports Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Publication 140-3, Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules, and its associated validation testing program, the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP). The series specifies modifications to ISO/IEC 19790 Annexes and ISO/IEC 24759 as permitted by the validation authority.
