Comments on Draft NIST Interagency Report 7977, Crypto Standards and Guidelines Development Process

On April 18, 2014 CDT submitted comments to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on NIST Interagency Report 7977, “NIST Cryptographic Standards and Guidelines Development Process.”

Our comments begin with general comments on NIST-IR 7977. We then discuss the principles listed in the document as well as additional principles. Lastly, we consider mechanisms and outreach that we believe will further these principles.
