Reclassification of Suite B Documents to Historic Status
Several RFCs profile security protocols for use with the National
Security Agency (NSA) Suite B Cryptography. Suite B is no longer
supported by NSA, and the web pages that specify the cryptographic
algorithms are no longer available.
In July 2015, NSA published the Committee for National Security
Systems Advisory Memorandum 02-15 as the first step in replacing
Suite B with NSA's Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA)
Suite. Information about the CNSA Suite can be found in [CNSA].
draft-housley-suite-b-to-historic-02 [TODO: change to RFC #] documents the full
rationale for this change.
