11. Interfaces for Personal Identity Verification
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-73-3
Published: 2/19/2010
Authors: Ramaswamy Chandramouli, David A Cooper, James F Dray Jr., Hildegard Ferraiolo, Scott Guthery, William I. MacGregor, Ketan Mehta
Abstract: [Superseded by SP 800-73-4 (May 2015):] FIPS 201, Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors, defines procedures for the PIV lifecycle activities inclu ...

12. Quantum Resistant Public Key Cryptography: A Survey
Published: 4/14/2009
Authors: Ray A Perlner, David A Cooper
Abstract: Public key cryptography is widely used to secure transactions over the Internet. However, advances in quantum computers threaten to undermine the security assumptions upon which currently used public key cryptographic algorithms are based. In this pa ...

13. Symmetric Key Injection onto Smart Cards
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7539
Published: 12/22/2008
Authors: David A Cooper, William I. MacGregor
Abstract: This paper describes architectures for securely injecting secret keys onto smart cards. Specifically, this paper details key injection architectures based on the identity credentials available on the Personal Identify Verification (PIV) Card. The p ...

14. A Recommendation for the Use of PIV Credentials in Physical Access Control Systems (PACS)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-116
Published: 11/20/2008
Authors: William I. MacGregor, Ketan L Mehta, David A Cooper, Karen Ann Scarfone
Abstract: This document provides best practice guidelines for integrating the PIV Card with the physical access control systems (PACS) that authenticate the cardholders in Federal facilities. Specifically, this document recommends a risk-based approach for sel ...

15. Secure Biometric Match-on-Card Feasibility Report
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7452
Published: 11/30/2007
Authors: David A Cooper, Trung-Hung Dang, Philip Lee, William I. MacGregor, Ketan Mehta
Abstract: FIPS 201, "Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors," and its associated special publications define a method to perform biometric match-off-card authentication of a PIV cardholder when the PIV card is inserted into ...

16. Comparison between NIST and AF laser energy standards using high power lasers
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 11/1/2007
Authors: Xiaoyu X. Li, Thomas Scott, Christopher L. Cromer, David Cooper, Steven Comisford
Abstract: We report the results of a high-energy laser calorimeter comparison conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Boulder, Colorado and the U.S. Air Force Primary Standard Laboratory (AFPSL), Heath, Ohio. A laser power meter ...

17. A More Efficient Use of Delta-CRLs
Published: 5/1/2000
Author: David A Cooper
Abstract: Delta-Certificate revocation lists (delta-CRLs) were designed to provide a more efficient way to distribute certificate status information. However, as this paper shows, in some environments, if delta-CRLs are used as was originally intended, the ben ...

18. A Model of Cerificate Revocation
Published: 12/1/1999
Author: David A Cooper
Abstract: This paper presents a model for the distribution of revocation information using certificate revocation lists (CRLs). This model is used to highlight inefficiencies in the traditional method of distribution certificate status information using CRLs. ...

19. A Closer Look at Revocation and Key Compromise in Public Key Infrastructures
Published: 10/1/1998
Author: David A Cooper
Abstract: Over time, in order to improve functionality or efficiency, new features have been added to the basic framework of public key infrastructures (PKIs). While these new features are useful, as with any other security critical application, new features ...
