Next-Generation Cryptography: NSA "Suite B"

In 2005, the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) identified a set of cryptographic algorithms that, when used together, are the preferred method for assuring the security and integrity of information passed over public networks such as the Internet. The NSA called the set of algorithms "Suite B." Today, Suite B is globally recognized as an advanced, publicly available standard for cryptography. It provides a security level of 128 bits or higher, significantly higher than many commonly used standards.

The Suite B set of cryptographic algorithms has become the preferred global standard for ensuring the security and integrity of information shared over non-trusted networks.

This educational resource that explains what "Suite B" is and how you can implement in in your network.

As explained in the paper, you will learn that "This white paper, intended for public sector IT professionals, explains:
"- Suite B combines four well-established public domain cryptographic algorithms
"- The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has established open standards for commercial products using Suite B, helping organizations adopt it with confidence
"- Cisco has introduced an IPsec-based implementation of Suite B cryptography"
