CAVP and ACVP Testing

To ensure your cryptographic algorithms are implemented properly, you need an experienced, knowledgeable partner. Cygnacom is accredited to conduct required FIPS testing on your cryptographic modules as well as Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Program (CAVP) and the NIST Automate Cryptographic Validation Protocol (ACVP) on your algorithm implementations.

CAVP testing will only be available until June 30, 2020 — transitioning entirely to ACVP testing thereafter.

Why Rely on Cygnacom?

Can organizations conduct their own testing? Yes. But it’s challenging. Testing takes resources away from other essential work. A time- and resource-consuming accreditation process and ongoing maintenance are required from the NIST National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP). You also need the highly specialized knowledge to ensure that testing is done accurately and thoroughly.

Many organizations choose to remove this burden by relying on Cygnacom for their algorithm testing. Through our consultative approach, we accelerate the certification process — fast-tracking everything from test vector generation to algorithm certification.
