It was to serve as an interoperable cryptographic base for both unclassified information and most classified information. Suite B was announced on 16 February A corresponding set of unpublished algorithms, Suite A , is "used in applications where Suite B may not be appropriate. See also RFC

Back To Search Results. A Cryptographic Interoperability Strategy CIS was developed to find ways to increase assured rapid sharing of information both within the U.
The implementation of CIS will facilitate the development of a broader range of secure cryptographic products which will be available to a wide customer base. Government and specified in NIST standards or recommendations. Since some products approved to protect classified information up to the TOP SECRET level will only contain algorithms with these parameters, algorithm interoperability between various products can only be guaranteed by having these parameters as options.
NSA also defined another algorithm suite, Suite A, which contains both classified and unclassified algorithms. Suite A will be used in applications where Suite B may not be appropriate.
A key aspect of Suite B Cryptography is its use of elliptic curve technology instead of classic public key technology. Under the license, NSA has the right to grant a sublicense to vendors building certain types of products or components that can be used for protecting national security information.
