NIST announces the completion of NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-133,
/Recommendation for Cryptographic Key Generation/. This Recommendation
discusses the generation of the keys to be used with NIST-*approved*
cryptographic algorithms. The keys are either generated using
mathematical processing on the output of *approved* Random Bit
Generators, or generated based upon keys that are generated in this
fashion. The document is available at
http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/PubsSPs.html.
