On 19 October 2011, the newly established OSCCA Technical Committee on National Cryptography Industry Standards held its first formal meeting in Beijing. The Committee will cover various aspects of cryptography standardization including technology, products, systems, and management methods.
The Committee will be chaired by Mr. He Liangsheng, Vice Director of the State Encryption Management Bureau SEMB, while the Vice Chair position will be held by Mr. Fang Xiang, Vice Director of SAC.
This new TC formalizes China’s intention to develop national cryptography standards. Chinese authorities have been developing domestic encryption algorithms and related technologies which will now be transferable into national standards.
