Cryptographic algorithms, when used in networks, are used within a cryptographic protocol. Even if the cryptographic primitives and schemes (discussed in the “Algorithms, key size and parameters” report of 2014, see link below) are deemed secure, their use within a protocol can result in a vulnerability which exposes the supposedly secured data.
The report focuses on the current status in...
The “Algorithms, key size and parameters” report of 2014 is a reference document providing a set of guidelines to decision makers, in particular specialists designing and implementing cryptographic solutions for personal data protection within commercial organisations or governmental services for citizens.
This report provides an update of the 2013 cryptographic guidelines report (link...

In this document we give guidance to NRAs about the implementation of Article 13a and in particular about the security measures that providers of public communications networks must take to ensure security and integrity of these networks. It lists the minimum security measures NRAs should take into account when evaluating the compliance of public communications network providers with paragraph 1...
This guideline gives guidance to NRAs about the implementation of Article 13a (of EU Directive 2009/140/EC) and, in particular, the two types of incident reporting mentioned in Article 13a: the annual summary reporting of significant incidents to ENISA and the EC and ad hoc notification of incidents to other NRAs in case of cross-border incidents. This document defines the scope of incident...
