4.4  Standards and Protocols

To be a workable technology for public use, cryptographic systems generally need to be interoperable. That is, messages encrypted with one vendor’s cryptography product should be able to be decrypted by another vendor’s cryptography product. In order for this to happen, the community needs to agree on the cryptographic and hashing algorithms used. A number of organizations have been involved with formal cryptography-related standards, including the IEEE, ANSI, IETF, RSA Data Security, Inc. and FIPS.
