Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 140-3, FIPS PUB 140-3, is a U.S. government computer security standard used to accredit cryptographic modules. The title is Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules. The publication is still in draft and has not been officially issued. FIPS 140-3 is the proposed revision of FIPS 140-2. The draft specifies five security levels instead of the four found in FIPS 140-2; has a separate section for software security; requires mitigation of non-invasive attacks when validating at higher security levels; introduces the concept of public security parameters; allows the deference of certain self-tests until specific conditions are met; and strengthens the requirements on user authentication and integrity testing. The National Institute of Standards and Technology issued the FIPS 140 Publication Series to coordinate the requirements and standards for cryptography modules that include both hardware and software components.show more
