Short Take: NCSA to certify crypto products

National Computer Security is developing criteria to certify digital security products that use cryptography. Proposed criteria, to be discussed tomorrow at a cryptography conference, include using an accepted cryptographic algorithm, implementing the algorithm without security-degrading mistakes, and passing input-output "black-box" testing. The criteria are a step toward adding crypto testing to the company's certification offerings. Testing will begin September 15, with results announced December 8.
