Requirements used in Cryptographic Module Testing

The following ISO/IEC standards are published applicable in JCMVP.

ISO/IEC 19790:2012 (Corrected version 2015-12-15)open new window
Information technology — Security techniques — Security requirements for cryptographic modules
ISO/IEC 24759:2017open new window
Information technology — Security techniques — Test requirements for cryptographic modules

ISO/IEC 19790:2012 was developed through discussions in ISO/IEC JTC1/SC27 based on a draft version of FIPS 140-3, which is under the development of National Institute of Standards and Technology in U.S.A., and the corrected reprint version of ISO/IEC 19790:2012 was published in December 2015.

ISO/IEC 24759:2017 specifies testing requirements for demonstrating the conformity to the requirements specified in ISO/IEC 19790:2012 (Corrected version 2015-12-15), and was published in March 2017.

Information about ISO/IEC standards transition

Cryptographic module test reports based on the previous edition (ISO/IEC 19790:2006 with ISO/IEC 19790:2006/Cor.1:2008, ISO/IEC 24759:2008) will be accepted by the end of June 2020. Until then, cryptographic module test reports will be accepted based on either previous edition or the current edition (ISO/IEC 19790:2012 (Corrected version 2015-12-15), ISO/IEC 24759/2017). From July 2020, cryptographic module test reports based on the current edition will be accepted.
Please contact each cryptographic module testing laboratory about whether the cryptographic module testing based on the current edition is accredited.
