>> requests final comments on draft FIPS 186-3, the proposed revision

>> methods for digital signature generation that can be used for the  
>> protection of messages, and for the verification and validation of  
>> those digital signatures using DSA, RSA and ECDSA. Please submit  
>> comments to ebarker@nist.gov with "Comments on Draft 186-3" in the  
>> subject line. The comment period closes on December 19, 2008.
