Release of NIST Special Publication 800-52 Revision 1, Guidelines for the Selection, Configuration, and Use of Transport Layer Security (TLS) Implementations
Kerry A. McKay, Kim Quill, Gregory A. Witte
NIST SP 800-52, Revision 1 provides guidance to U.S. Government information system managers for the selection and configuration of TLS protocol implementations. U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-130, Management of Federal Information Resources, requires managers of publicly accessible federal systems to ensure that sensitive data is protected. SP 800-52 Revision 1 provides guidelines that focus specifically on the transport layer as described in the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model (ISO/IEC 7498-1). TLS is applicable to a variety of situations where clients and servers need to interact and where authentication is performed using public key certificates. SP 800-52 is used in conjunction with other NIST information technology security publications to ensure the protection and security of an entire information system.
