As part of our continued push to modernize the product security certification industry, Lightship Security is pleased to announce that it is receiving advisory services and conditional research and development funding from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) supporting a project to develop and launch our innovative client facing cryptographic algorithm testing portal.

The support from NRC IRAP is being used to build and launch an easy-to-use vendor portal to simplify the more challenging aspects of ACVP interaction  for vendors validating their algorithm implementations through NIST’s Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Program (CAVP).  This industry first SaaS certification support offering is another tool in our growing toolbox to remove certification barriers and to simplify the process for our growing list of clients.  

Lightship Security is the fastest growing CC and CMVP laboratory in North America. Reach out to see how our testing experts have helped many of the leading product vendors in the world with their product certification needs and why we can do the same for you.
