The National Institute of Standards and Technology wants comments on the best way to design criteria to evaluate new encryption standards for small computing devices. NIST will eventually ask researchers and cryptographers for algorithms that could be used to encrypt data on small, "constrained devices," such as sensors, RFID tags, industrial controllers and smart cards that are being incorpora...
