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.
(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
from Oct.1, 2009 to Feb.4, 2010 17:00(JST)
*** Application period was over ***
For details, please refer to the following document(in Japanese).

Attached sheets 1-4 of the Application Guide(in Japanese)
(MS-WORD File: 93KB)
Request on advance notice
If you have determined to apply your cryptographic techniques,
your advace notice will be highly appreciated,
as we want to grasp the number of applications.
The deadline is November 30, 2009(Mon),
and no materials are needed for the advance notice.
