Cryptography standards

There are a number of standards related to cryptography. Standard algorithms and protocols provide a focus for study; standards for popular applications attract a large amount of cryptanalysis.


  • Encryption standards 1
  • Hash standards 2
  • Digital signature standards 3
  • Public-key infrastructure (PKI) standards 4
  • Wireless Standards 5
  • U.S. Government Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 6
  • Internet Requests for Comments (RFCs) 7
  • Classified Standards 8
  • Other 9
