Available Now: Fall 2020 Virtual Workshop Recordings and Materials

The NCCoE hosted a series of virtual workshops this fall. Click the links below to listen to a particular webcast, view the presentations, or to learn more about a project.

 Automation of the NIST Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP)

The number of cryptographic module validations has outstripped the available human resources for timely validation processing. This phenomenon is affecting all stakeholders participating in the CMVP (vendors, labs, and validators alike). The purpose of the workshop was to discuss the challenges and proposed approaches associated with automating the CMVP.

Challenges with Compliance, Operations, and Security Challenges with Encrypted Protocols, in Particular TLS 1.3

This workshop identified various approaches and practices to meet common compliance, operations, and security challenges with modern encrypted protocols. The findings from this workshop will inform the development of a potential National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence demonstration project to implement one or more of the proposed approaches while meeting the business use cases, security capabilities, and supporting technologies. 

Considerations in Migrating to Post-Quantum Cryptographic Algorithms

The purpose of the workshop was to discuss the challenges and investigate the practical and implementable approaches to ease the migration from the current set of public key cryptographic algorithms to replacement algorithms that are resistant to quantum computer based attacks. This effort complements the NIST post-quantum cryptography (PQC) standardization activities  

Trusted IoT Device Network-Layer Onboarding and Lifecycle Management

NIST invited industry subject matter experts and practitioners to present their views on challenges to implementation, operations, and security matters associated with trusted IoT device network-layer onboarding.
