Title
Digital Signature Algorithm RSA 2048

Applicability

Authentication and integrity algorithm for ?Sub Certification Authority and other PKI components (such as Key Recovery Agents)? as mandated by the interoperability protocol PCT for implementing digital signatures for a NATO Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) in the NATO messaging system. PKCS#1 v2.1 provides recommendations for the implementation of public-key cryptography based on the RSA algorithm, covering

  • Cryptographic primitives
  • Encryption schemes
  • Signature schemes with appendix
  • ASN.1 syntax for representing keys and for identifying the schemes

The recommendations are intended for general application within computer and communications systems, and as such include a fair amount of flexibility. It is expected that application standards based on these specifications may include additional constraints. The recommendations are intended to be compatible with the standard IEEE-1363-2000 and draft standards currently being developed by the ANSI X9F1 and IEEE P1363 working groups.
