The information in this publication identifies and describes approved cryptographic algorithms and appropriate methods of use to protect the confidentiality of PROTECTED A and PROTECTED B information and the integrity of information to the medium injury level as defined in CSE’s ITSG-33 IT Security Risk Management: A Lifecycle Approach .
IT Security is essential to government and commercial business activities in Canada. Public Key Cryptography (PKC) is used to protect the confidentiality and integrity of information and is robust in today’s computer environment. However, a new computer technology, quantum computing, promises a significant increase in computational capabilities that could compromise PKC.

Small and medium organizations have valuable information (e.g. sensitive business, employee, and client information) that needs to be protected to ensure business activities run smoothly. Small and medium organizations are likely targets of cyber attacks because these organizations often lack resources to put towards cyber security. While it may not be possible to protect everything, knowing what information is valuable to your organization can help you protect what matters most.

Information Technology Security Guidance for Practitioners ITSP.30.031 V3 supersedes ITSP.30.031 V2 User Authentication Guidance for IT Systems and provides guidance on user authentication in IT systems. ITSP.30.031 V3 is also part of a suite of documents developed by CSE to help secure GC departmental networks. User authentication is imperative in keeping cyber threat actors out of departmental systems, and the security controls used to protect GC systems are critical elements in the design of IT infrastructure.
Obtaining the right information at the right time in the right place is critical for organizations to carry out their day-to-day business. This requirement must be balanced with the appropriate information protection measures. Historically, organizations’ information has been protected by separating networks having different levels of information. However, this separation makes it difficult to share information.
