FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. Allen Roginsky, Computer Security Division, 100 Bureau Drive, Stop 8930, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD 20899– 8930, telephone (301) 975–3603. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FIPS 140– 1, Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules was issued in 1994 and was superseded by FIPS 140– 2 in 2001. FIPS 140–2 identifies requirements for four security levels for cryptographic modules to provide for a wide spectrum of data sensitivity (e.g., low value administrative data, million dollar funds transfers, and life protecting data), and a diversity of application environments. Over 1600 modules have been tested by accredited private-sector laboratories and validated to-date as conforming to this standard. The standard provided that it be reviewed within five years to consider its continued usefulness and whether new or revised requirements should be added. A notice was published in the Federal Register (Volume 70, Number 8) on January 12, 2005, soliciting public comments on reaffirming the standard. The comments supported reaffirmation of the standard, but suggested technical modifications to address advances in technology since the standard was originally issued. Using these comments, NIST prepared Draft FIPS 140–3. The most important differences between this Draft FIPS 140–3 and the current FIPS 140–2 standard are: Specifying five security levels instead of four; having a separate section for software security; requiring to mitigate against the non-invasive attacks when validating at higher security levels; introducing a notion of public security parameters; allowing to defer various self-tests until certain conditions are met; and strengthening the requirements on user authentication and integrity testing. Authority: Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) are issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology after approval by the Secretary of Commerce pursuant to Section 5131 of the Information Technology Management Reform Act of 1996 and the Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107–347). VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:05 Jul 12, 2007 Jkt 211001 E.O. 12866: This notice has been determined not to be significant for the purposes of E.O. 12866. Dated: July 5, 2007. James M. Turner, Deputy Director, NIST. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Notice of a public meeting. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The New England Fishery Management Council’s (Council) Multispecies (Groundfish) Committee will meet to consider actions affecting New England fisheries in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ). DATES: The meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 1, 2007, at 9 a.m. ADDRESSES: The meeting will be held at the Holiday Inn, One Newbury Street, Peabody, MA 01960; telephone: (978) 535–4600.

Howard, Executive Director, New England Fishery Management Council; telephone: (978) 465–0492. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The items of discussion in the committee’s agenda are as follows: 1. The Multispecies (Groundfish) Oversight Committee will continue development of Amendment 16 to the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan. Amendment 16 will adjust measures as necessary to continue the rebuilding of overfished groundfish stocks. At this meeting, the Committee will address sector management issues and they will discuss the recommendations of the Council’s Sector Committee as well as specific sector proposals. The discussion will include, but not be limited to, developing alternatives for the baseline period to be used when allocating fishing opportunities to sectors, identifying stocks for which an allocation must be requested, providing allowances for non-sector fisheries (e.g. scallop dredge fishery, recreational PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 fisheries, state waters fisheries, etc.), discussing discard monitoring requirements, and other issues related to sector management. If this discussion is completed, the Committee will review changes to the days-at-sea system for vessels that choose not to join a sector. 2. The Transboundary Management Guidance Committee will meet jointly with the Committee to receive reports of recent stock assessments for Eastern Georges Bank cod and haddock and Georges Bank yellowtail flounder. 3. Other business may also be discussed. Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically identified in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the Council’s intent to take final action to address the emergency.
