IEEE P1363 is an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standardization project for public key cryptography. It includes specifications for: The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers or IEEE (pronounced as eye-triple-ee) is an international non-profit, professional organization for the advancement of technology related to electricity. ... PKC, see PKC (disambiguation) Public-key cryptography is a form of modern cryptography which allows users to communicate securely without previously agreeing on a shared secret key. ...

Traditional public key cryptography (P1363-2000 and P1363A-2004), including digital signature and key establishment, using several mathematical approaches:

Password-authenticated key retrieval (e.g. Ford and Kaliski) schemes.

Other kinds of public key cryptography may be standardized in future projects. In cryptography, digital signatures are a method of authenticating digital information often treated, sometimes too closely, as analogous to a physical signature on paper. ... A key is a piece of information that controls the operation of a cryptography algorithm. ... In mathematics, the integer prime-factorization (also known as prime decomposition) problem is this: given a positive integer, write it as a product of prime numbers. ... In cryptography, RSA is an algorithm for public key encryption. ... In abstract algebra and its applications, the discrete logarithms are defined in group theory in analogy to ordinary logarithms. ... Diffie-Hellman key exchange is a cryptographic protocol which allows two parties to agree on a secret key over an insecure communication channel. ... Alternate meanings for the abbreviation DSA: See DSA (disambiguation) The Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) is a United States Federal Government standard for digital signatures. ... Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) is an approach to public-key cryptography based on the mathematics of elliptic curves. ... MQV (Menezes-Qu-Vanstone) is an authenticated protocol for key agreement based on the Diffie_Hellman scheme. ... In colloquial usage, a lattice is a structure of crossed laths with open spaces left between them. ... NTRUEncrypt, also known as the NTRU encryption algorithm, is an asymmetric key encryption algorithm for public key cryptography. ... A password is a form of authentication which uses secret data to control access to a resource. ... The Secure Remote Password Protocol is an authentication protocol which allows a user to authenticate herself to a server which is invernurable against most attacks and does not require a trusted third party. ...

Most IEEE members are electrical engineers, computer engineers, and computer scientists, but the organization's wide scope of interests has attracted engineers in other disciplines (e.g., mechanical and civil,) as well as biologists, physicists, and mathematicians.

The goal of the IEEE education programs is to ensure the growth of skill and knowledge among the technical profession and to foster individual commitment to continuing education among IEEE members, the engineering and scientific community, and the general public.

The IEEE requires that a proposed draft of the standard receive a response rate of 75% (i.e., at least 75% of potential ballots are returned) and that, of the responding ballots, at least 75% approve the proposed draft of the standard.
