As is norm during this time every year, CAVP operates on a holiday schedule. This is particularly important if you (and your lab) are racing to get a validation report submitted before the end of the year. This year, CAVP has indicated that all algorithm submissions need to be in by December 20, 2014

If you have cryptographic algorithm validations that you would like processed before the end of 2014, please submit them by December 20, 2014.

If you submit validations after this date, we cannot guarantee that they will be processed by December 31, 2014.

Please be sure to keep this in mind while sprinting to get the validation report submitted!
