How are recommendations of NIST SP 800-90A/B/C met for the CEC1702?
  • The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP 800-90x documents describe how a True Random Number Generator (TRNG) and Deterministic Random Bit Generator (DRBG) should be designed and evaluated. Combining a TRNG compliant with SP 800-90B and a DRBG compliant with SP 800-90A is described in SP 800-90C.
  • A DRBG requires firmware post-processing on the TRNG output. The DRBG may also require health testing that is done in the firmware.
