Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Committee makes technical recommendations regarding the development of a draft FIPS for Cryptographic Key Recovery Systems which could be incorporated into a Federal Key Management Infrastructure. The Committee focuses on the key recovery services of the Federal Key Management Infrastructure for both stored and communicated information. The Board held its twelfth and final meeting in November 1998 to review the final draft document to be forwarded to the Secretary of Commerce for submission to NIST for development as a FIPS.
How is membership balanced?*The members, appointed by the Secretary of Commerce, are selected solely on the basis of established technical expertise in cryptography and the implementation of cryptographic systems. Federal government employees may serve as members of the Committee. The Committee membership numbers 18 members appointed for a two-year term. Members are drawn from academia, IT vendors, security-specific product vendors, IT users and other categories of interest.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Committee meets at least quarterly at the call of the Chairperson and may hold additional meetings whenever one-third of the members so request in writing. At each meeting, the Committee reviews, discusses and revises the current version of the draft document. The last meeting of the Board was held on November 17-19, 1998 in Orlando, Florida.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*Use of strong cryptography on a widespread basis in the GII requires a supporting infrastructure, including the provision of many services. One important service is key recovery (for keys used for confidentiality). To facilitate provision of key recovery services for its own use, the government needs an encryption key recovery standard. The standard must be developed by working with those who produce and use cryptographic technologies in the private sector. This Committee, comprised primarily of private sector individuals, will be an important vehicle by which the government gains the benefit of private sector input in developing this standard.
