FIPS Publication Change Notice

FIPS PUB 186, Digital Signature Standard (DSS)
Change No.: 1
Date of Change: 1996 December 30

Change Items:

  1. The following change is made to Appendix 3.2 Algorithm for Precomputing one or more k and r Values:

  2. The following change replaces Appendix 5, Example of the DSA. This example has been changed for use with FIPS 180-1, Secure Hash Standard (SHS):


    (Revised for use with FIPS 180-1)

    This appendix is for informational purposes only and is not required to meet the standard.

    Let L = 512 (size of p). The values in this example are expressed in hexadecimal notation. The p and q given here were generated by the prime generation standard described in appendix 2 using the 160-bit SEED:

    	d5014e4b 60ef2ba8 b6211b40 62ba3224 e0427dd3

    With this SEED, the algorithm found p and q when the counter was at 105. x was generated by the algorithm described in appendix 3, section 3.1, using the SHA-1 to construct G (as in appendix 3, section 3.3) and a 160-bit XKEY:

    XKEY =

    	bd029bbe 7f51960b cf9edb2b 61f06f0f eb5a38b6

    t =

    	67452301 EFCDAB89 98BADCFE 10325476 C3D2E1F0

    x = G(t,XKEY) mod q

    k was generated by the algorithm described in appendix 3, section 3.2, using the SHA-1 to construct G (as in appendix 3, section 3.3) and a 160-bit KKEY:

    KKEY =

    	687a66d9 0648f993 867e121f 4ddf9ddb 01205584

    t =

    	EFCDAB89 98BADCFE 10325476 C3D2E1F0 67452301

    k = G(t,KKEY) mod q
