Subject: [saag] FYI: NIST posts CMAC for public comment


The Draft NIST Special Publication 800-38B "Recommendation for Block Cipher 
Modes of Operation: the CMAC Mode for Authentication" was posted for public 
review today at:


This Recommendation specifies the CMAC mode of operation for symmetric block 
ciphers.  CMAC is a cipher-based message authentication code algorithm based 
on an approved block cipher such as the AES algorithm or TDEA. Additional 
information on this document, related publications, and the development of 
modes of operation in general is available at the modes home page:


Comments on SP 800-38B should be submitted to <EncryptionModes at nist.gov>.  
NIST will be accepting comments on SP 800-38B until April 25, 2005.
