> NIST requests comments on the draft revisions of two publications: NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-57, Part 1 and SP 800-90A.
>  
> The revision of SP 800-57, Part 1, Recommendation for Key Management: Part 1: General, is intended to align the document with SP 800-131A, as well as to provide a general update of the document, including references to NIST publications that have been completed since the last revision of the document. A general list of the changes is provided at the end of Appendix D, and except for some editorial changes, the changes within the documented are marked. The document is available at http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/PubsDrafts.html. Please send comments to KeyManagement@nist.gov by July 1, 2011, with “SP 800-57, Part 1 comments” in the subject line.
>  
> SP 800-90A, Recommendation for Random Number Generation Using Deterministic Random Bit Generators, is intended as a revision of the currently-posted version of SP 800-90. Two of the appendices in SP 800-90 provided information on entropy sources and RBG constructions. These topics will be discussed in further detail in SP 800-90B and SP 800-90C, respectively, which are under development. SP 800-90A takes into account the work on RBGs that has been conducted within Accredited Standards Committee X9 since the original publication of SP 800-90. A general list of the changes is provided at the end of Appendix H, and except for some editorial changes, the changes within the document are marked. The document is available at http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/PubsDrafts.html. Please send comments to RBG_comments@nist.gov by August 1, 2011, with “SP 800-90A comments” in the subject line.
