1. A Guide to the Selection of Anti-Virus Tools and Techniques
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-5
Published: 12/1/1992
Authors: William T Polk, Lawrence E Bassham
Abstract: Computer viruses continue to pose a threat to the integrity and availability of computer systems. This is especially true for users of personal computers. A variety of anti-virus tools are now available to help manage this threat. These tools use a w ...

2. A Statistical Test Suite for Random and Pseudorandom Number Generators for Cryptographic Applications
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-22 Rev 1a
Published: 9/16/2010
Authors: Lawrence E Bassham, Andrew L Rukhin, Juan Soto, James R. Nechvatal, Miles E. Smid, Stefan D Leigh, M Levenson, M Vangel, Nathanael A Heckert, D L. Banks
Abstract: This paper discusses some aspects of selecting and testing random and pseudorandom number generators. The outputs of such generators may be used in many cryptographic applications, such as the generation of key material. Generators suitable for use i ...

3. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)
Series: Federal Inf. Process. Stds. (NIST FIPS)
Report Number: 197
Published: 11/26/2001
Authors: Morris J Dworkin, Elaine B Barker, James R. Nechvatal, James Foti, Lawrence E Bassham, E Roback, James F Dray Jr.
Abstract: The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) specifies a FIPS-approved cryptographic algorithm that can be used to protect electronic data. The AES algorithm is a symmetric block cipher that can encrypt (encipher) and decrypt (decipher) information. Encryp ...

Report Number: 6391
Published: 10/1/1999
Author: Lawrence E Bassham
Abstract: The evaluation criteria for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Round1 candidate algorithms, as specified in the Request for Comments (1), includes computional efficiency, among other criteria. Specifically, the Call For AES Candidate Algorithms ...

7. Randomness Testing of the Advanced Encryption Standard Finalist Candidates
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6483
Published: 4/1/2000
Authors: Juan Soto, Lawrence E Bassham
Abstract: Mars, RC6, Rijndael, Serpent and Twofish were selected as finalists for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). To evaluate the finalists' suitability as random number generators, empirical statistical testing is commonly employed. Although it widely ...
