Industry participants, members of the general public, and other interested parties are invited to engage with the Applied Crypto team on the Addressing Visibility Challenges with TLS 1.3 project. Engagement can mean becoming a collaborator or joining our Community of Interest, as follows:
- NCCoE Collaborators—As members of the project team, collaborators work alongside NCCoE staff to build the demonstration by contributing products, services, and technical expertise. Collaborators are expected to participate in regularly scheduled conference calls, and to help build and document the demonstration.
- Interested? Let’s get started—First review the requirements identified in the Federal Register Notice which is based on the final project description. Once you have a good understanding about this project, please complete this form and you will receive instructions and a Letter of Interest (LOI) where you can present your capabilities. Completed LOIs are considered on a first-come, first-served basis within each category of components or characteristics listed in the Federal Register Notice, up to the number of participants in each category necessary to carry out the project build.
- Collaborator Selection—The Addressing Visibility Challenges with TLS 1.3 project team will review all LOIs and may follow up with respondents with questions or to discuss your capabilities. If selected, the Addressing Visibility Challenges with TLS 1.3 project team will notify you via email. Next, you will receive a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) for review and signature. Once the CRADA has been signed, participants can begin working with the NCCoE to develop an example solution for eventual publication in an NCCoE practice guide. This process can take anywhere from several weeks to a few months. If you submit an LOI and are not selected, the project team will notify you via email.
- Community of Interest (COI) Membership—COI members receive periodic updates and the opportunity to share your expertise and help shape this project. Go here to join the Adressing Visibility Challenges with TLS 1.3 COI.
