Critical Security Parameters

Critical security parameters (CSPs) are security-related information such as cryptographic keys and passwords that can compromise the security of the cryptographic module or the security of the information protected by the module if they are disclosed or modified.

Zeroization of the system erases all traces of CSPs in preparation for operating the device as a cryptographic module.

Table 3 lists the CSP access rights within services.

Here:

  • G = Generate: The device generates the CSP.

  • E = Execute: The device runs using the CSP.

  • W = Write: The CSP is updated or written to the device.

  • Z = Zeroize: The device zeroizes the CSP.
