SCIMP provides strong encryption, perfect forward secrecy and message authentication.Further, we have incorporated many NIST-approved methods and protocols into its design including:

  • Elliptic Curve Diffie–Hellman (ECDH), NIST 800-56A
  • Counter with CBC-MAC (CCM), NIST 800-38C
  • Key Derivation, NIST 800-108
  • Secure Hash Standard, FIPS 180-4
  • Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), FIPS 197

Does anyone else see a problem with with the wording "NIST-approved methods and protocols?" NIST/NSA

I once did a painting in art school, well it was 900 small paintings that made up one large painting. While I was working on this painting Peter Saul gave a lecture at the school. When he finished I approached him and asked for his autograph on one of my little canvases. When I hung the 900 paintings in the final show I create reproductions of that one canvas for fear that the original would be stolen. I hung all five so that no one would know which painting was the original.

The real solution... I never hung the original.
