FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Cindy Robinson at (202) 482–3797, AD/ CVD Operations, Office 3, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20230. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Background On September 25, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on corrosion–resistant carbon steel flat products from Korea, covering the period August 1, 2006, to July 31, 2007. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 54428 (September 25, 2007). On September 9, 2008, the Department published the preliminary results of this review. See Certain Corrosion–Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products From the Republic of Korea: Notice of Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 52267 (September 9, 2008). The final results of this review are currently due no later than January 7, 2009. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (AAct@), requires VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:30 Nov 10, 2008 Jkt 217001 the Department to issue the final results of a review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time limit because several technical issues have arisen. These issues include: (1) Whether to add a separate field to differentiate laminated products from painted products based on the physical, cost, and price differences of the two, and therefore to modify the Department’s model–match methodology; (2) whether to recalculate the general and administrative and financial ratios; and (3) whether to exclude gains and losses on currency forward contracts. These issues require additional analyses of certain information. Therefore, the Department is fully extending the final results. The final results are now due not later than March 8, 2009. As this day falls on a Sunday, the final results are due March 9, 2009. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant of the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). Dated: November 4, 2008. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice announces a second public review and comment period for Draft Federal Information Processing Standard 186–3, Digital Signature Standard. The draft standard, designated ‘‘Draft FIPS 186–3,’’ is proposed to revise and supersede FIPS 186–2. Draft FIPS 186–3 is a revision of FIPS 186–2, the Digital Signature Standard. The Draft FIPS specifies three techniques for the generation and verification of digital signatures that can be used for the protection of data: the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA), the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) and the RivestShamir-Adelman (RSA) algorithm. Although all three of these algorithms were approved in FIPS 186–2, this revision increases the key sizes allowed for DSA, provides additional requirements for the use of RSA and ECDSA, and includes requirements for obtaining the assurances necessary for valid digital signatures. FIPS 186–2 contained specifications for random number generators (RNGs); this revision does not include such specifications, but refers to NIST Special Publication (SP) 800–90 for obtaining random numbers. Prior to the submission of this proposed standard to the Secretary of Commerce for review and approval, it is essential that consideration is given to the needs and views of the public, users, the information technology industry, and Federal, State and local government organizations. The purpose of this notice is to solicit such views. DATES: Comments must be received on or before December 12, 2008. ADDRESSES: Written comments may be sent to: Chief, Computer Security PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Division, Information Technology Laboratory, Attention: Comments on Draft FIPS 186–3, 100 Bureau Drive— Stop 8930, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD 20899–8930.

FIPS 186, first published in 1994, specified a digital signature algorithm (DSA) to generate and verify digital signatures. Later revisions (FIPS 186–1 and FIPS 186–2, adopted in 1998 and 1999, respectively) adopted two additional algorithms specified in American National Standards (ANS) X9.31 (Digital Signatures Using Reversible Public Key Cryptography for the Financial Services Industry (rDSA)), and X9.62 (The Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA)). The original DSA algorithm, as specified in FIPS 186, 186–1 and 186– 2, allows key sizes of 512 to 1024 bits. With advances in technology, it is prudent to consider larger key sizes. Draft FIPS 186–3 allows the use of 1024, 2048 and 3072-bit keys. Other requirements have also been added concerning the use of ANS X9.31 and ANS X9.62. In addition, the use of the RSA algorithm as specified in Public Key Cryptography Standard (PKCS) #1 (RSA Cryptography Standard) is allowed. A request for public comments was published in the Federal Register on March 13, 2006 (71 FR 12678). After receiving comments in response to this notice, NIST incorporated the comments and posted a revised version of the FIPS on its Web site. NIST received some additional comments in response to this posting. In all, a total of 15 individuals and organizations provided comments (two U.S. government agencies, a foreign government agency, one university, eight private organizations, and three from individuals). The following is a summary of the comments received and NIST’s responses to them: Comment: Seven commenters suggested a number of editorial changes. Response: NIST made the appropriate editorial changes, which included correcting typographical errors; spelling, format and font size changes; reference restrictions and updates, where appropriate; minor word changes and clarifications.
