ITSO Approved Cryptographic Algorithms
Virginia Tech departments conducting federally funded research must use NIST-approved cryptographic algorithms. However, the IT Security Office has approved other well-regarded cryptographic algorithms for other use cases. If you are not protecting data that is required to use NIST-approved algorithms, then you may also use these ITSO-approved algorithms.
