NIST Considering Move To ISO/IEC Security Standard

The primary value of the DCI specification for digital cinema is security. DCI devotes nearly half of its 155 page document to the subject of security, specifying in great detail how the various elements in a digital cinema system are to be constructed and how they must behave from a security point-of-view. A cornerstone of the DCI specification is its reliance on voluntary specifications established by the US Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). In August, the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) issued a request for public comment to reference or possibly replace in entirety the FIPS 140-2 specification, relied upon by DCI, with the ISO/IEC 19790:2012 specification.
