Structured Entropy Assessment and Practical Evaluation Considerations (C21b)

NIST SP 800-90B offers a wealth of information on assessing entropy. However, as an evaluator, the standard remains silent on practical aspects of analysis that are otherwise significant to Common Criteria evaluations and FIPS validations. In this talk, Lightship Security will discuss the entropy analysis requirements for Common Criteria with specific focus on one structured analysis procedure and how this can aid vendors preparing for certification.
