Abstract:

The selective application of technological and related procedural safeguards is an important responsibility of every Federal organization in providing adequate security in its Computer and telecommunication systems. This publication provides a standard to be used by Federal organizations when these organizations specify that cryptographic-based security systems are to be used to provide protection for sensitive or valuable data. Protection of a cryptographic module within a security system is necessary to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of the information protected by the module.
