Cryptography Development

Cryptography Development (CD) was established in 2007 to spearhead the research and development in various areas of cryptography. Through MyCEL lab (accredited by National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP), USA), CD is now able to perform evaluation on the correct implementation of cryptography through module and algorithm validation services. CD continuously engages with the cryptography experts in Malaysia to support activities in one of the National Cryptography Policy’s Strategic Approach.


Our goal is to increase organisational’s data protection, confidentiality and integrity through the use of evaluated and certified cryptographic modules and algorithms


CDD Objectives:

  • To increase trust on the use of cryptography technology in IT products and digital environment; and

  • To provide expertise in cryptographic modules and algorithms validation in compliance with FIPS 140 standard and ISO/IEC 19790 standard




CyberSecurity Malaysia Cryptographic Evaluation Laboratory (MyCEL)



CyberSecurity Malaysia Cryptographic Evaluation Laboratory (MyCEL) was accredited by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP), USA


With this accreditation, MyCEL is able to carry out the evaluation and validation activities of cryptographic modules contained in a security product based on FIPS140 security requirements. This enhanced the user’s security and trust in using cryptographic module in security products.

MY Cryptographic Module Validation - ISO/IEC 19790



Malaysia scheme for validating and certifying cryptographic modules based on ISO/IEC 19790:2012 standard


CD performs validation activities based on testing methods specified in ISO/IEC 24759:2017





Senarai Algoritma Kriptografi Terpercaya Negara



MySEAL is a project to develop a portfolio of national trusted cryptographic algorithms. It is a project specifically designed to provide a list of cryptographic algorithms suitable for implementation within Malaysian context that supports National Cryptoraphy Policy (NCP) or Dasar Kriptografi Negara. While NCP serves as a guiding document for Malaysia to achieve cryptographic sovereignty, MySEAL will support in the scientific areas of cryptography and cryptanalysis.





Cryptanalysis and other Cryptographic Evaluation



Other analysis / evaluation services that related to cryptography:

  • Cryptanalysis
  • Cryptographic algorithm conformance testing
  • Randomness testing using CRTT




Research & Development



CD involves in the R&D initiatives that related to cryptography and Distributed Ledger Technology. Among our R&D projects are:

  • CiliPadi Lightweight Cryptographic Algorithm
  • SmartPay System – Cashless payment system on Ethereum Blockchain platform

Under this service, we welcome any partnerships with local and international parties to accelerate the development of cryptography.
