NIST Revises Special Publications 800-140C and 800-140D for the CMVP
May 20, 2022

NIST has published revisions of two Special Publications (SP) that identify security functions and sensitive security parameter generation and establishment methods allowed within the context of the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP):

Each publication introduces the security function naming conventions that will be used for validation submissions and certificates. The revisions also add and remove references to other standards and recommendations. For a complete list of changes, see the Document Revisions section at the end of each publication.
