Start of the Application for Cryptographic Techniques towards the Revision of the e-Government Recommended Ciphers List
October 1, 2009
National Institute of Information and Communications Technology
Information-technology Promotion Agency, Japan

CRYPTREC has started accepting applications of cryptographic techniques towards the revision of the e-Government Ciphers List in FY 2013. Called cryptographic techniques and the application period are as follows.

Cryptographic techniques

   (1)Symmetric cryptographic techniques
       a) 128-bit block ciphers(key lengths: 128/192/256 bits)
       b) Stream ciphers (key length: 128 bits or more)
   (2)Message Authentication Codes
   (3)Modes of operation
   (4)Entity Authentications

Application period

   from Oct.1, 2009 to Feb.4, 2010 17:00(JST)

*** Application period was over ***
