CNSA 2.0 Update Part 4: Deployment

On April 18th, 2024, the NSA released updates and clarifications to their CNSA 2.0 (Commercial National Security Algorithm Suite 2.0) advisory in the form of an FAQ. This is the fourth in a multipart series of postings about the questions and answers that we feel are most interesting and our reactions to them.

Q: When should deployment of CNSA 2.0 algorithms in mission systems begin?

A: When validated products become available they should be deployed in mission systems. Meanwhile, NSA encourages responsible testing in vendor and government research environments now to understand the effects of deployment of the new algorithms on particular systems given the increased sizes used in these algorithms.

Translation: time to “get cracking” and build post-quantum cryptographic implementations you plan to use. You need to understand that while performance for Kyber/ML-KEM won’t be an issue, (see our benchmarks) artifact sizes are increasing!

If you are used to the tiny artifacts in ECDHE then this should be a real eye opener. We’re talking kilobytes going over the wire and taking up memory.

How will this affect you? First of all, if your transmission medium is slow then more bytes going over the wire during the protocol handshake will naturally increase the time to your first application data being sent. Secondly, if your current application is already memory constrained, you might need to re-evaluate how you use your memory or even increase the amount of memory available to your application.

Considering these things takes time and planning, now is the time to start. Download now!

CNSA 2.0 Update Part 3: LMS and XMSS

On April 18th, 2024, the NSA released updates and clarifications to their CNSA 2.0 (Commercial National Security Algorithm Suite 2.0) advisory in the form of an FAQ. This is the third in a multipart series of postings about the questions and answers that we feel are most interesting and our reactions to them.

But first, some clarifications on terms and acronyms:

  • NSS: National Security System
  • NIST SP 800-208 National Institute of Standard and Technology Special Publication 800-208 titled: Recommendation for Stateful Hash-Based Signature Schemes
  • LMS: Leighton-Micali Signatures; a stateful hash-based signature scheme
  • HSS: Hierarchical Signature Scheme; the hyper-tree algorithm that is on top of LMS
  • XMSS: eXtended Merkle Signature Scheme; a stateful hash-based signature scheme
  • XMSS^MT: eXtended Merkle Signature Scheme – Multi-Tree; the hyper-tree algorithm that is on top of XMSS

Q: Can I use HSS or XMSSMT from NIST SP 800-208?

A: From NIST SP 800-208, NSA has only approved LMS and XMSS for use in NSS. The multitree algorithms HSS and XMSSMT are not allowed.

Essentially what this means is that only the actual stateful hash-based signature schemes are approved for usage in NSS. The hyper-tree (colloquially known as “tree of trees”) components specified in NIST SP 800-208 are not approved.

Our implementation supports the hyper-tree components with the actual stateful hash-based signature schemes. More specifically, HSS/LMS and XMSS/XMSS^MT.

It is quite simple to transform an LMS public key into an HSS/LMS public key by putting 4 bytes of zeros in front of the LMS public key. The same is true of the signature.

In addition to the hyper-tree components, we allow for XMSS by supporting the following specifications in our API:

  • XMSS-SHA2_10_256
  • XMSS-SHA2_16_256
  • XMSS-SHA2_20_256

Note the lack of MT.

Here at wolfSSL we are looking forward to the future of post-quantum algorithms. If you need LMS or XMSS that is performant, capable of running in bare metal environments like pre-boot, or resource constrained environments, contact us at facts@wolfSSL.com or call us at +1 425 245 8247.

CNSA 2.0 Update Part 2: NIAP

On April 18th, 2024, the NSA released updates and clarifications to their CNSA 2.0 (Commercial National Security Algorithm Suite 2.0) advisory in the form of an FAQ. This is the second in a multipart series of postings about the questions and answers that we feel are most interesting and our reactions to them.

But first, some clarifications on terms and acronyms:

  • NIST SP 800-208 National Institute of Standard and Technology Special Publication 800-208 titled: Recommendation for Stateful Hash-Based Signature Schemes
  • NIAP: National Information Assurance Partnership: A United States government organization that oversees evaluations of commercial information technology products for use in national security systems
  • LMS: Leighton-Micali Signatures; a stateful hash-based signature scheme
  • XMSS: eXtended Merkle Signature Scheme; a stateful hash-based signature scheme
  • CAVP: The Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Program; provides guidelines for validation testing which is a pre-requisite for CMVP testing
  • CMVP: Cryptographic Module Validation Program; security accreditation program for cryptographic modules.

Q: As a commercial vendor, how do I know if my NIST SP 800-208 implementation meets CNSA 2.0?

A: NIAP validates products against its published Protection Profiles, which will start including quantum-resistant signatures in line with our published transition timelines. For commercial vendors, we do not anticipate NIAP Protection Profiles will perform signature generation within the Target of Evaluation (TOE) boundary, only signature verification. As signature generation is the component of LMS/XMSS that requires state management, if only signature verification is being performed, only CAVP validation (not CMVP) will be expected for such products.

Anyone who has been following wolfSSL’s progress with post-quantum algorithms knows we have our own implementations of LMS/HSS and XMSS/XMSS^MT and they are integrated into the wolfBoot product! wolfBoot only uses them to verify the signature of the firmware, therefore one only needs to build these algorithms with verification functionalities. Check out sections 17 and 20 of our wolfSSL INSTALL file.

Requiring only CAVP validation is an excellent bonus for our customers. It means that validation will be a simpler and easier process for our team to help you achieve. You can count on fast turnaround times and little if any paperwork.

CNSA 2.0 Update Part 1: Today

On April 18th, 2024, the NSA released updates and clarifications to their CNSA 2.0 (Commercial National Security Algorithm Suite 2.0) advisory. They did it in the form of an FAQ document (list of Frequently Asked Questions with answers). The FAQ document was sent to the PQC Forum. This will be the first in a multipart series of postings about the questions and answers that we feel are most interesting and our reactions to them.

Q: Is there a quantum-resistant public-key algorithm that commercial vendors should adopt today?

A: NSA encourages vendors to use CNSA 2.0 approved hash-based signatures for software- and firmware-signing. NSA does not approve using pre-standardized or non-FIPS-validated CNSA 2.0 algorithms (even in hybrid modes) for NSS missions. However, NSA does recommend limited use of pre-standardized or non-FIPS-validated CNSA 2.0 algorithms and modules in research settings to prepare for the transition. NSA requests vendors begin preparing to implement CNSA 2.0 algorithms so they are primed to provide products soon after NIST completes standardization.

The NSA has spoken and they expect the industries from which they purchase to provide products that support the CNSA 2.0 Algorithm Suite upon standardization. That means DO NOT start when standardization is complete; start now.

You need to be prepared with these algorithms already integrated into your products. Here at wolfSSL we have been saying the same message for years. You need to prepare for and understand the impacts that the larger keys, cipher text and signatures are going to have on your systems. Will these larger cryptographic artifacts require more memory resources? Will they slow down your transmissions? Will the answer to those questions cascade into new requirements and trade-offs? Now is the time to find those answers. Contact us at support@wolfssl.com for benchmarking details.

If you haven’t already, go ahead and get started today. See Appendix G of our wolfSSL manual. Have further questions about getting started with CNSA 2.0 using wolfSSL, contact us at support@wolfSSL.com.
